Some common concerns I hear from Asian women professionals are:
"I try to advocate for myself, but keep getting denied or deferred — what am I doing wrong?"
"I’m tired and stressed from going 'above and beyond' at work just to meet minimum expectations — is it just me? Why does it feel like I always have to give more?
"I don’t like where I am (or who I’m with), but I don’t know if something better exists, or how to get it if it does."
"When I’m honest and “authentic” at work, my ideas get rejected or my concerns get dismissed. It feels like I’m risking my career. I need a good job, but I also need to be seen and recognized. Can I have both?"
"I just can’t keep up anymore, it’s too hard being a good mom / auntie / daughter / sister / friend / partner and a good contributor / manager / leader. Should I take a lower-paying / contract / self-employed / part-time job, just so I have more time for my loved ones, my home, and my self?!"
"I’ve been told I need to 'fix' my weakness in:
Time management || Speaking and facilitating || Team motivation
Conflict handling || Negotiating and influencing || Communicating (I have an accent)
in order to perform well at work — is that really what’s wrong with me? How do I do these things if my 'authentic self' just isn’t good at them?"
What got us here is keeping us here.
I’m a Chinese-Canadian, immigrant, cis-straight female with invisible disabilities, and I’ve both experienced systemic discrimination and perpetuated it against others.
I now recognize the colonial, white supremacy culture we all live within, and how it ingrains certain worldviews and mindsets that lead to systemic racism and inequity.
Just as "master's tools will never dismantle the master's house" (Audre Lorde), neither will corporate strategies dismantle corporate systems.
My core beliefs are:
People not profit.
Empathy not indifference.
Justice not prejudice.
Dignity not despair.
Belonging not rejection.
Freedom not fear.
Truth not silence.
My core values are:
My methodologies are founded on the understanding that "Trauma isn't what happened to you, it's what happened inside you." (Gabor Maté, M.D.)
Employers who genuinely believe in diversity, equity, and inclusion, are still grooming Black, Indigenous, Asian, and all racialized women to produce under an "executive leadership" model created by and for white men.
So I'm breaking from corporate status quo to offer coaching for racialized women that is:
3) Made for matriarchy
The result? Racialized women professionals can rise higher, recover faster, and work healthier.

Corporate Coaching for ERGs and Racialized Women Employees
Have you ever wished for leadership coaching or career advice from someone relatable and relevant to you?
Over my 20+ year career, almost all the mentorship or coaching I received was from white leaders. The lack of representation meant I was further ingrained and assimilated into patriarchal, colonial, capitalist culture. And these mindsets are what keep racialized and equity-seeking groups down.
That's why I provide 1-on-1 and group coaching programs to racialized (BIPOC) women (of color) wanting to break this cycle. Founded on my real-life HR, executive, toxic workplace experiences, I use my trauma education and neuroscience-based coaching to help you stop conforming and start transforming.
Private and Group Coaching for Individual Racialized Women
My passion is helping leaders to grow more inclusive, and organizations to grow more human.
Many organizations have diversity and inclusion statements proclaiming this as their goal, but aren't as clear how to get there. But working on diversity and inclusion alone does not give enough weight to antiracism, gender equity, economic equity, and their intersections - which are my areas of focus.
Going from systemic inequity to equity requires a redistribution of power that means the privileged group will have less, and the under-privileged group will have more. This requires personal sacrifice and courage. I know, because I've also had to acknowledge my own privilege and humble myself.

What Clients Are Saying
Neil Carson, Deputy Director General, DGMPRA,
Chief Military Personnel, Canadian Department of National Defence
As the Department of National Defence continues to address culture change, we hosted a 90 minute roundtable webinar on culture, diversity, and inclusion. Speaking to an audience of social scientists and military members, Rosie was one of our external expert panelists, providing a respectful, yet challenging voice to what can often be a sensitive discussion topic. Her contributions were insightful and provocative, and her participation was a key element to making the roundtable a successful event.
