Having personally been the only Asian female on all-white, male leadership teams in the past, Anita knows that diversity adds tremendous value to decision making. She is a member of the Embrace network at Barclays and helped establish a new branch of their WIN gender network within the UK. She has also mentored many female colleagues, on topics including managing workplace prejudice and conflict. Anita was the first person in her family to go to university, having been born in the UK to Chinese immigrants. As a result, helping young Chinese people get into the UK workplace has always been close to her heart. Over the past 15 years, she has mentored several first generation Chinese immigrants and Chinese students, helping them with their job applications and supporting them as they adjust to life in the UK and to the UK work place.
