Empowering Asian Americans: Women in Leadership
Featured speakers include:
- Puget Sound Trustee Emerita Jill Nishi '89
- Washington Supreme Court Justice Mary Yu
- Attorney and Entrepreneur Nicole Shanahan '07
Recognizing the intersections of racial and gender biases against Asian American women, this symposium aims to share stories of challenges and triumphs in the lives of three accomplished Asian American women leaders, and engage our students and the community in a discussion about workplace diversity, breaking through the bamboo ceiling, and other race and gender related issues, particularly in light of the recent surge of anti-AAPI violence and racism. Presented by Asian Studies Program, the symposium is organized by various members from the campus community and sponsored by our community partner, the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation.
