Dion Lim is a TV news anchor and reporter at ABC7/KGO-TV in San Francisco, CA. She has made her mark as a minority climbing the competitive TV news ladder. But she stands apart as a professional journalist who is willing to share her own stories with viewers and readers, as well. (Just ask her about the time she anchored an 11pm newscast with a chicken wing bone stuck in her neckline!)

A sought-after speaker and emcee, she has hosted events with everyone from news legend Dan Rather to Hollywood celebrities like Patrick Dempsey and community groups, such as a leadership summit of 600+ attendees for immigrant women. She has contributed to the Huffington Post by Arianna Huffington’s personal invitation and has also written a series for Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls. She has been named one of America’s Top 18 Leaders in TV Under 34 by Broadcasting & Cable Magazine.

In her new book, coming out in 2019, Dion will share her stories — and the crucial lessons for women that she has learned along the way.

When she’s not writing, Dion and her husband, a professional poker player, are adventurous travelers who share a love of food, dachshunds, and the movie Crazy Rich Asians.




Hey fabulous females of the world, here’s a secret: You don’t have to be the most talented, the smartest, the most attractive or even the most skilled person in your class/workplace/on Planet Earth to get what you want!

But you do need to know how to communicate the right way.

In this book, I give readers a step-by-step guide to staying on top of your game in a world where we’re all being observed at all times. You’ll learn how to think on your feet, advocate for yourself, stand out and be remembered, and stay true to your intentions as you move closer to your goals at work and in life.

You don’t get from being an awkward American-born Chinese in white bread parts of the country to anchoring ABC San Francisco without learning a few things along the way.




If public speaking is an addiction, I have it.

Some say my speaking schedule is dynamic: one day I hosted 300+ US State Department officials for an evening with Dan Rather, and a week later spoke to a group of hundreds of girls and their moms for the Girl Scouts of America.

Scribd x The Assembly: 9/6

In partnership with Scribd, we’re excited to host Dion Lim as she shares her book, Make Your Moment – a succinct handbook for young women learning to navigate the working world. Lim doesn’t downplay the difficulties she’s overcome (including growing up Asian-American in several rural, majority-white towns), or hide any embarrassing social faux pas she’s made. She also doesn’t shy away from notable achievements, becoming a news anchor in multiple major U.S. cities and earning several “Best Of” accolades along the way. We’re looking forward to have Lim in conversation with Desiree Perea as she shares personal stories as well as pragmatic career recommendations.
