Anchor and reporter, KGO-TV
Dion Lim is an Emmy Award-winning TV news anchor and reporter at ABC7/KGO-TV in San Francisco and author of Make Your Moment: The Savvy Woman’s Communication Playbook to Getting The Success You Want (McGraw-Hill) based on her experiences as the first Asian American woman to be at the helm of a weekday newscast in three major markets including Kansas City, Charlotte and Tampa Bay.
Dion is passionate about amplifying voices of color and had led the charge in shedding light on the hate and assaults targeting Asian Americans in the Bay Area. Her work has resonated across the country on ABC News Live, Nightline, Good Morning America and 20/20.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors also recently awarded Dion for her dedication to reporting on discrimination and xenophobia toward Asian Americans and the Black communities.
Whether it be on the speaking circuit for Fortune 500 companies or in op-eds in the San Francisco Chronicle and an in-depth interview for New York Magazine about covering hate crimes in the time of Covid-19, Dion’s message is loud and clear: representation matters more now than ever and we can do it through communication.
