Asian Americans: Beyond the Numbers

DateMay 31, 2023
12:00pm - 1:00pm
Virtual - Zoom

Model Minority or Forever Foreigner? Invisible or hypervisible? Particularly in the context of heightened anti-Asian violence, both rhetorical and physical, the treatment of Asian Americans can be viewed as a litmus test for the limitations and failures of current diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy. Healthcare providers, educators, and leaders must hone their lenses and capacity for truly seeing and meeting the needs of Asian Americans at their organizations, as status quo practices feed into White supremacist framings of community competition and erasure.

Panelists are Sumun Pendakur, EdD, Consultant, Speaker and Trainer, Sumun Pendakur Consulting; Ria (Ariana) DasGupta, EdD, Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Initiatives, The Juilliard School; and Kimberly A. Truong, PhD, Chief Equity Officer, MGH Institute of Health Professions.

The free event is open to the MGH Institute and MGB communities and affiliates. Hosted by the MGH Institute JEDI Office.
