Through guided discussion and activities, participants will explore strategies for disrupting implicit bias and identify ways that we can each help to build an inclusive community. The sessions will run on a regular basis and are open to all employees. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited.


Model Minority/Model Enemy: Anti-Asian/American Bias in the Age of COVID covid panel flyer
Panel Discussion
Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 4:00 PM ET
Registration required:

Since the first days Asian immigrants came to the United States, as either international students or strikebreakers, Asian Americans have historically been used as either a model minority or a hated one depending on whether the American power structure needed a collaborator or an enemy in order to maintain the status quo. Now the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us new ways these old myths can be used against us. Join us for a moderated panel conversation on the reinvention of these racist stereotypes accompanying the rise of racist and xenophobic incidents targeting Asians and Asian Americans, and explore ways we can create the solidarities needed to advocate for justice in our communities.
