Special Advisory – Composition of DotAsia Board

In early 2018, DotAsia’s bankers requested that we cease listing Board members with nationalities from UN and/or US sanctioned countries as directors. Even though no Board member was (and is) an OFAC Designated individual we understand that banks are free to choose whether or not to accept customers, and upon what terms. DotAsia complied with its bankers’ request and has since received the benefit of such Board members’ contributions in a role somewhat akin to an observer, rather than as director.

AAPI Heritage Month: Interview with Tommy Ho 

Asian American heritage is about inclusion. It’s a description that cuts a wide cloth across a vast array of cultures and peoples, and it’s important to celebrate the similarities and differences. I see that diversity represented within GoDaddy’s Employee Resource Group (ERG), and GoDaddy Asians are growing. Especially during these unpredictable times, our sense of belonging that we feel through our groups help to boost mental and physical health.

AAPI Heritage Month: Interview with Mou Mukherjee

AAPI Heritage Month: Interview with Mou Mukherjee

In some ways, I abandoned my culture when I was young because I was trying so hard to fit in. My parents were, and still is very cultural. Growing up, there was always Indian music playing, our house was full of Bengali literature, my Dad’s hero was poet Rabindranath Tagore, and he also loved the films of Satyajit Ray. I was surrounded by culture and yet I couldn’t fully embrace it at the time.
