As a child of Asian immigrants, Annie Yu spent a lot of time growing up navigating "the right way" to do things.

Currently Chief of Staff of the Revenue function at Vox Media, Annie has also spent time at BuzzFeed and Undertone.

 

"Media has a huge influence on culture, how we see ourselves and how we see each other," says Annie. "I get to be part of building a movement that continues to push boundaries by highlighting global issues and diverse perspectives. That's so exciting!" People are what make organizations strong and in her work, Annie creates change in systems and structures that embed diversity and inclusion in hiring, career development, resourcing, workflow, communication, team cultures and more.
