Session seating is first come, first served. Thank you for your cooperation.

As America’s fastest growing racial or ethnic group, Asian Americans are moving up the corporate agenda. And yet, this population is full of paradoxes. Asian Americans are America’s best-educated group, yet their rate of promotion into leadership roles is less than that of whites, African Americans or Latinos. Asian Americans are recruited in large numbers, yet they feel more excluded in the workplace than any other group.

Get ready for a riveting journey into:

  • The unique challenges facing Asian Americans in the workplace, and the fascinating brain science behind these challenges.
  • How well-intentioned HR policy results in expanding exclusion and inequity for Asian Americans.
  • Evidence-backed strategies which you can immediately use to activate inclusion and equity for Asian Americans.

Our speaker is Joy Chen, CEO of the Multicultural Leadership Institute and a former Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles, who as a global leader in creating inclusion for millions has been profiled in the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the Economist, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, and Vogue China.

Don’t miss this one-time event to enable you to unlock the potential of the fastest-growing segment of your current and future workforce!
