Exploring the Asian American/Canadian Experience at Work

In this presentation, we will examine the complex experiences faced by Asian American and Canadian workers when navigating their organizations and careers, with a particular emphasis on challenges to attaining and maintaining leadership positions for this group. Key themes covered will include interpersonal versus intrapersonal barriers, within-group heterogeneity or diversity, and intersectionality. Interwoven alongside this empirical program of research, we will also discuss lessons learned for understanding the workplace experiences of other diverse groups and the presenter’s own journey as a diversity and inclusion researcher.
