GM in Major
Making History. On being an Asian female leader
25 Jun 2021
Kim Ng made history when she became the first female (Win #1) and first Asian American (Win #2) to be appointed the general manager of a Major League Baseball team. The Miami Marlins wrote history with their pick last year.
Apparently Kim is also the first female to be a GM in any of the North American Big Four – MLB, NBA, NFL, and NHL.
I have been furiously reading up on her ever since … simply because she is female and she has Asian roots. Her story sounds so familiar that without the baseball context, it reads like most female leaders’ journey in other industries. Check out her comment below!
“We are building for the long term in South Florida, developing a
forward-thinking, collaborative, creative baseball operation made up of
incredibly talented and dedicated staff who have, over the last few`
years, laid a great foundation for success,” she continued.
“This challenge is one I don’t take lightly. When I got into this
business, it seemed unlikely a woman would lead a Major League team,
but I am dogged in the pursuit of my goals.”
She is also believed to be the first woman hired to the general manager position by any of the professional men’s sports teams in the North American Major Leagues, the organization said in a press release.
To all women co-Senior Pastors, Pastors and Leaders out there, keep bringing what you bring to your churches. The weight of your contribution is known to you, the people you have impacted and more importantly, God!
