On 5/6/21, Hunter hosted this online public program as part of the Hunter@Home series.
Professor Margaret Chin and a panel of trailblazing Asian American business leaders including Joyce Chang, Matthew Lee and Mohammad Shaikh, discussed professor Chin’s new book, Stuck: Why Asian Americans Don’t Reach the Top of the Corporate Ladder.
In Stuck, Chin shows that there is a “bamboo ceiling” in the workplace, describing a corporate world where racial and ethnic inequalities prevent upward mobility. Drawing on interviews with second-generation Asian Americans, she examines why they fail to advance as fast or as high as their colleagues, showing how they lose out on leadership positions, executive roles, and entry to the coveted boardroom suite over the course of their careers.
This illustrious group of successful Asian American C-Suite executives and visionary founders shared their backgrounds and experiences as Asian Americans in the workforce. Do they agree or disagree with Professor Chin’s findings? During this engaging discourse, they offered their advice on how Asian Americans can get “unstuck” and also make significant, positive impacts on others.
