I thought I had a pretty good handle on the challenges of Diversity... But that was before I met Celia Young. Celia's presentation was nothing short of stunning. Her passion, insight and delivery had an impact on the audience unlike any I'd seen. One could literally see 'the lights coming on' in the individuals who publicly responded to her series of observations and questions. Afterwards, everyone I spoke with said Celia's presentation was one of the most eye-opening, meaningful and practical they had experienced.

Her Background

Celia was born in Hong Kong, raised in Taiwan and has family ties in China. She has lived in the U.S. since 1971. Learning and working on both sides of the Pacific Rim has given her the unique ability to straddle the two worlds. It also provided her the ability to understand the sometimes subtle, yet often complex dynamics at play in working with multi-national organizations, leaders, and teams.

It’s between those two worlds where her life’s work continues.
