Unity Through Communication - AAPI in Media and Entertainment -
Against the backdrop of Anti-Asian violence and political rhetoric, we have seen deeply significant gains in the past year, from an increased focus in the political scene, to entertainment and blockbuster content led by Asian Americans. In this session, our panelists will share how we can leverage media and entertainment to unify our narrative.
Unity Through Intersectionality - Shattering the Bamboo Ceiling
Asians and Pacific Islanders are over 40 ethnicities and have been marginalized, dismissed, and stereotyped. We have experienced racism in one form or another, whether it be physically or verbally, micro and macro aggressions, professionally or career wise, and ridiculed for our appearances and languages. We have had to overcome these stereotypes and racism to achieve financial, career, family, emotional and spiritual success. We will be telling our lived experiences through an intersectionality lens in overcoming these barriers with grit, determination, tenacity, fortitude, courage, perseverance, uncompromising our values, and strong voices.
