Asians in America have long experienced bias and discrimination. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, members of this community have increasingly become targets of verbal and physical attacks in the United States. The attacks in the first few months of 2021 grew more intense, tragic, even fatal. In response to thousands of reported hate incidents in the last year amid escalating violence, over 1,000 Asian business leaders and allies came together in March. They signed an open letter and published it in a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal. The open letter denounced anti-Asian hate, and leaders and allies pledged to fight to end “discrimination and violence against the Asian community and all marginalized communities.”

Speaking out publicly is only an essential first step. What are leaders doing, tactically and strategically, to take action to counter the bias, discrimination, and even hate against Asians in America that produce impactful solutions and sustainable changes? 

Join this webinar to hear from three CEOs, Asians who graduated from Stanford, on their observations and personal experiences with bias and discrimination. Learn how they translate their anger with anti-Asianism into productive actions that will drive short and long-term impactful changes at home, at work, and in the community. The speakers will share their recommendations for what actions Asians and allies can take. There will be time for Q&A with the panel speakers. After the one hour webinar, there will be a virtual hangout in a separate Zoom meeting for participants who wish to continue the conversation informally. Links to both the webinar and the optional Zoom meeting will be sent the day before the event to registered attendees.

Opening remarks will be given by Stanford GSB Dean Jonathan Levin.

You are invited and encouraged to join the post–webinar discussion for Stanford Alumni from 6:30 – 7:00pm (PST) for attendees to meet in small groups. The panelists and moderators will join. There is a separate link for the post-discussion provided below:
