Overview (Program Summary)

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.
