ACC IDEAL Series: AAPI Disrupting the Silence – A Conversation About Anti-Asian Hate and Bias

April 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Please join us on April 27 at 1pm ET

Conversations designed to discuss bias and disrupt racial inequalities are difficult to have, and that holds true for many AAPI attorneys. However, such discussions are necessary to understand how bias, microaggressions and anti-Asian hate can transcend beyond our communities and into the workplace.  Often, people of color and those who want to support them feel intimidated to speak up —afraid that their words may be misinterpreted,  trigger misperceptions, or worse. As a result, many sit silent. Silence will not bring about understanding or change. Thus, we must disrupt the silence and bridge our ability to communicate openly, honestly, and with mutual respect.  For this discussion led by diversity expert Paula T. Edgar, we will talk about how those affected by anti-Asian hate and bias, and their allies can vocalize concerns when they recognize inequalities in their companies and communities.

 

The ACC Foundation will host a special session of Disrupting the Silence – A Conversation  About Anti-Asian Hate and Bias from our IDEAL series: Conversations designed to discuss bias and disrupt racial inequalities are difficult to have, and that holds true for many AAPI attorneys. However, such discussions are necessary to understand how bias, microaggressions and anti-Asian hate can transcend beyond our communities and into the workplace.
