40 Under 40: Most Influential Asian-Australian Awards

5 December, 2019

Congratulations to alumnus Philip Le Liu on being named winner of the Public Sector/Government category in the 40 Under 40: Most Influential Asian-Australian Awards at the inaugural Asian-Australian Leadership Summit. The Awards recognised young Asian Australians’ contributions across a range of sectors. There is an absence of Asian Australians in senior leadership positions in Australia, and the Summit started the conversation about how to break through the ‘bamboo ceiling’. Former Board member Professor Tim Soutphommasane, speaking at the event, pointed out that “if we are not careful, we are at risk of creating a new class in Australian society: a class of professional Asian-Australian coolies….who may nonetheless be permanently locked out from the ranks of their society’s leadership”.
