This event is open to all Berkeley Lab Employees. Berkeley Lab is a Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Corporate Program member.
We invite Corporate Program members to join us at 9:00AM PT on October 4th for a 90-minute webinar focused on Stuck: Why Asian Americans Don’t Reach the Top of the Corporate Ladder. We will kick-off the session with Professor Margaret M. Chin, Professor of Sociology at Hunter College/City University of New York (CUNY) and CUNY Graduate Center, presenting findings from her book entitled Stuck: Why Asian Americans Don’t Reach the Top of the Corporate Ladder. In her book she examines how Asian Americans poised for career success often encounter the “bamboo ceiling” in Corporate America, due to racial and gender bias and stereotyping. After Chin’s presentation, she will engage in a fireside chat with Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab Co-founder Lori Nishiura Mackenzie to discuss what is needed to drive change forward. The session will conclude with Lab Research Associate Melissa Abad in conversation with industry leaders to discuss the organizational and individual strategies needed to unravel the structural inequalities faced by Asian Americans in the workplace.
