On September 20, tune into INSIGHT Into Diversity’s webinar series that will focus on the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community across higher education.
As colleges prepare to fully reopen this fall, campus leadership needs to be prepared to confront potential acts of hate and violence against the AAPI community, including students and employees. AAPI people have commonly been named “the model minority” in the United States, a persistent myth that alienates them from other communities of color and beyond. Our panelists will share strategies for addressing racism towards the AAPI community as we have all witnessed across the country in recent months.
In addition, AAPI people remain underrepresented in leadership positions at U.S. colleges and universities, according to the American Council on Education. Our panelists include AAPI professionals whose careers have taken them to top positions in higher education. They will discuss the role that current leaders can play in supporting institutional practices and policies that can increase AAPI achievement and promotion.
