May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and yes I am late, as June has already made its entrance but here we are.

 

Although the numbers vary as of 2017 according to the US Census Bureau, there are over 22 Million people with an Asian-American heritage. In addition there are well over a Million Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders. They live and work in all the key sectors of the economy including technology. They may be first or fourth generation but they have enriched our communities.

 

I was able to interview Win Chang, Cloud Customer Experience Director and Chairperson of Oracle Professional Asian Leadership (OPAL). In the interview Win discusses what it was like growing up Asian-American, her families journey to our shores, and working in tech. You can check out her interview below.
