Martin Pong

Product Manager, 10x Future Technologies

Martin is recognised by the Financial Times as a global top 10 future leader for his advocacy work supporting people of colour and the LGBT+ community. Having noticed the lack of visible gay East Asian role models, Martin founded the East and Southeast Asian (ESA) Project, the first UK non-profit organisation that focuses on achieving equal representation for East and Southeast Asian identities in media, business and politics. In the workplace, Martin has created an industry leading inter-sectional reverse mentoring programme to raise awareness of multiple minority identities and experiences. Martin regularly speaks about his experiences as an LGBT+ East Asian and uses the power of storytelling to share his unique struggles and lived experiences with future generations.
