Combating Asian-American Hate In The Workplace
On March 16, 2021, a gunman in Atlanta shot and killed 6 Asian-American women. The shooter’s motive is still under investigation, but Asian-American hate in the wake of COVID-19 was nevertheless thrust to the forefront of the public consciousness.
As many Asian-American and Pacific Islanders (“AAPIs”) already know, bias was a fact of life long before COVID-19. Over the years, surveys have confirmed that, amongst ethnic groups, AAPIs rank at or near the highest rate of perceived race discrimination at work.
