Pam Yang

DEI Speaker & Facilitator | AAPI Experiences | Executive Coach | Business Insider's Most Innovative Career Coaches | Founder Agency DEI

Pam is a problem solver at heart.
She helps people achieve their own versions of success and build careers they're fulfilled by. She
does this through coaching, speaking, and workshops on career development, DE&I, and
AAPI/immigrant experiences. In 2020, she was named to Business Insider’s Inaugural List of Most
Innovative Career Coaches.
Prior to, her dream since age 8 was to be the NBA Commissioner. She chased her dream jobs in
sports, brand strategy, and marketing with The NBA, ESPN, Nike, Jordan Brand, and R/GA. But
after 15+ years she got tired of selling things while also realizing how many people are unhappy at
work yet spend most of their lives working. So she found a way to adapt her
strategy/brand/marketing expertise to serve her mission to help people live more fulfilling,
impactful lives and to make workplaces more equitable and inclusive.
This past year, the relentless trauma in POC communities motivated her to begin her community
organizing career through fundraising for hate crime victims, organizing and leading protests,
volunteering with social justice groups, advancing AAPI education policies, and supporting NYC's
Chinatown businesses with proposal writing and marketing strategy.
Despite the trauma happening all around us, she believes empathy, awareness, and curiosity can
save our world if we each recognize our power to affect change and put in the day in day out work
to exercise it.
