We kick off Season 6 “LifeChangers” today (August 26th)  with a limited special series.

LifeChangers is about Asian philanthropists sharing stories about life-changing turning points that have shaped their mindset and inspired their philanthropic passion. Now, they feel compelled to change the lives of others. 

You don’t need to give away a lot of money like Bill Gates to be a philanthropist.

You only need to ask the right question at the right time.

Episode #1 “Am I the Only One?

What more do you want when you reach the VP level of a top tech company in America? 

For Buck Gee - a Chinese-American retired tech entrepreneur and philanthropist, when he became a senior executive at Cisco in the early 2000s, he asked his supervisor, “Am I the only one?”  He noticed that he was the only Asian American at that level, and he was unhappy. Why? What did he do about it? That question would become the seed of his philanthropic passion. 

Tune into my conversation with Buck Gee in Episode 1 “Am I the Only One?”

(Note: Buck Gee was Vice President and General Manager of the Data Center Business Unit at Cisco before retiring in 2008. In 2010, he co-founded the Advanced Leadership Program for Asian American Executives, an executive education program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He has published several Ascend Foundation research papers on the Asian glass ceiling and has written opinion pieces on that issue for the Harvard Business Review and The New York Times.) Buck Gee holds BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. Learn more about Buck here.  (source: Committee-100 )
