Support & Response to the Current Climate
The current crises of COVID-19 and civil unrest have exacerbated pressures felt by Asians and Asian Americans. Over thirty percent of Americans have witnessed COVID-19 bias against Asians, according to a survey conducted by Center for Public Integrity.
Our expert presenter shares key issues, best practices and insights on establishing impactful campus initiatives, responses and actions to bias, and long-term programming for Asian and Asian-American populations.
You’ll be able to sensitively and inclusively understand and support this population on campus, as well as address unconscious bias and systemic racism against Asians within interpersonal interactions, departmental approaches, and institutional policies.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Gain a broader understanding of the historical foundations of anti-Asian racism related to national policies, media messaging and racial dynamics, as well as the crises of the current times — provide better support and effectively respond to current COVID-19 and civil unrest issues urgently impacting Asian and Asian American students.
