From Refugee to Visionary Leader
In this weeks episode of the Driving Change podcast, host Jeff Bloomfield engages in a profound conversation with Hang Black, a Vietnamese refugee turned influential business leader. Hang shares her harrowing escape from Vietnam as a child, detailing the struggles her family faced during their journey to the U.S. and their adjustments to life in Louisiana. Despite facing racism and cultural challenges, Hang embraced compassion, understanding, and curiosity, eventually forging a successful career in technology and sales enablement. She emphasizes the importance of recognizing and celebrating diversity, advocating for intentional inclusivity in the workplace and beyond. Hang’s story is not just about survival but also about leveraging adversity to drive positive change and embracing one’s unique background to impact others.
“Diversity is having a seat at the table. Inclusion is having a voice at the table. Equity is having your voice be heard.”
