About the talk

Topic: Business
Best practices and watch-outs in creating a community for a group that is so diverse and nuanced: there is no through-line (language, religion, culture, etc.) among all the groups that make up Asians; further some groups that technically should be included do not self-identify as Asian; there are different levels of acculturation, etc. In some industries Asians don’t feel underrepresented overall; at the same time, this overlooks lack of Asian representation in leadership or lack of Asian diversity.
