About the host:

Since then, Pei has provided consulting services to a range of international businesses with a focus on helping Asian businesses set up European operations. Pei has been following esports, from afar, since the early days of World of Warcraft tournaments 13 years ago and has been active in the discussions, over the past few years, around esports place in the wider entertainment world, specifically cinema.
Short description of the event:
Pei always worked in male-dominant industries in her professional life with very few female colleagues, and she has always wondered ‘Where are the women?’. With time, she realized there were not only barriers made by education, hiring discrimination, but most importantly, there’s often an unconscious self-barrier.
During this roundtable session, Pei will share her professional life experience and through ‘questions & discussions’, she would like to learn more about the participants’ professional experience. Collectively, the session might bring answers to some fundamental questions about how to be a woman in a man’s world.
