The rise in xenophobia and racism aimed at Asian Americans over the past year is undeniable. What is behind this and what can we do to help address it? This program goes beyond discussing the most obvious instances of harassment and bias and shows how xenophobia and racism can be active in subtle, everyday ways. It will provide practical ways of moving forward to address these trends as individuals and in our work as research and insights practitioners.
