Appropriately, this year’s keynote speaker, Don H. Liu, Esq., Senior Vice President of Xerox Corporation, has broken new ground throughout his career. Mr.. Liu emigrated from Korea when he was ten years old. He received a BA degree from Haverford College and a JD degree from Columbia University School of Law. Prior to joining Xerox, Don Liu was Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Toll Brothers. He has been recognized with the Legacy Diversity Award from the American Bar Association’s Council on Legal Education Opportunity and the Best Lawyers Under 40 award from the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association.
Mr. Liu has been on a one-man mission to break down the stereotype of Asians as nerdy individuals with calculators, as well as to break down what he calls the “the bamboo ceiling” in corporate America. It is his hope that, by making changes, Korean-Americans can become visionary leaders. Mr. Liu’s address will be of particular interest to students and recent graduates, as well as to those who already have begun their careers.
