Event Details

Are you in the prime of your career, experiencing the Bamboo Ceiling, or exploring other opportunities?  In this DINNER+workshop we will explore the joys and challenges of being in mid-career with the most recent data and research from Ascend including an analysis of EEOC data finding that Asian Americans are the least likely to be promoted into management.   We will also walk through a case study of how Google has supported its Asian community and highlight resources and best practices that you can bring back to your organizations.  In roundtable discussions we will apply the learnings our own career journeys and how perceptions of the Asian workforce can influence our career paths as well as how we can help coach and be advocates for ourselves and others.
