Regional Business Transformation Manager, Manulife

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region

Randell Aranza is a regional business transformation manager for Manulife in Hong Kong. In this role, Randell has spearheaded initiatives to shift the culture around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace. Randell also spearheaded an LGBTQ+ Inclusion study in Hong Kong, in collaboration with other non-profit organizations, to document the progress of workplace inclusion in the city. This became a springboard for wider conversations and efforts within the community and for the Equal Opportunities Commission to run programs in support of its findings. Being a son of domestic helpers in Hong Kong, his first-hand experience being an ethnic minority and member of the LGBTQ+ community motivates him to create real impact within the communities he serves.
