Dr. Christine Chow

Upon returning to the UK in 2000, I did an experiment – I sent out two CVs to executive search firms with the same content, one under my maiden Asian surname, the other under my newly wedded British husband’s surname.

I received 5 times more response using my husband’s surname. Since then, I decided to stick to my maiden name – marriage has strengthened me but it has not changed me as a person.

I contribute to a number of work streams of the Project covering academic, mid-career, ethnicity and LGBTQ. I am a practicing investment professional; an alumni and a lay governor of the London School of Economics, with a PhD from University of Melbourne.

I also completed executive education in financial engineering from Stanford University.
