We tell stories about Asian Americans challenging the status quo
No story is ever linear.
Rock the Boat co-founders Lucia Liu and Lynne Guey initially started Rock the Boat to make sense of their own zigzag career journeys. Both were at a crossroads in their mid-level careers, so they set out to interview other Asian Americans about their career paths with the hopes of finding greater meaning and purpose in their work. What started as strictly “professional” conversations quickly became conversations about other Asian American issues like mental health, the bamboo ceiling, affirmative action, interracial dating, our role in civic/public life and much more.
Ultimately, they discovered that people were thirsty for candid dialogue that went well beyond that of their careers.
Today, Rock the Boat is…
A community-first podcast focused on telling the diverse stories of Asian Americans charting unique paths and challenging the status quo,
A network for Asian American professionals seeking resources to broaden their portfolio career,
A platform for Asian Americans to cultivate their voice and organize around society’s important issues
Beyond a collection of stories, Rock the Boat is an ecosystem for Asian American professionals at all stages in their career to connect with people in other industries, engage in discussion around important societal issues, and collectively create the cultural change they wish to see.
