S11 E2: The Perspectives of Discrimination and Representation

Presented by

Julia Streets

About this talk

This in-depth discussion focuses on the rise of the #StopAsianHate campaign and the United States Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, when President Biden signed the bipartisan Covid 19 hate crime legislation. Host Julia Streets is joined by Jeff Le, Vice President of Public Policy and External Affairs for Rhino from Washington D.C. and Nick Parker, Lawyer at Baker McKenzie from London. They thoughtfully navigate through the uncomfortable but long overdue conversation around discrimination against East Asians, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, and the lack of representation from a corporate and personal perspective. They continue by addressing how stereotypical perceptions of the ‘model minority’ can deter career progression, and the importance of how changing the mindsets of managers and leaders can lead to positive change and inclusion.

We’ve seen a growing appreciation of the value of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in the financial services industry. Organisations have increased their focus on D&I initiatives, but is this simply marketing rhetoric? Some would argue that we’ve seen great progress, whilst others would say there is still much to be done. For each episode of DiverCity Podcast we invite recognised leaders and influencers – people who are pioneers in their own right – to talk about areas of transformation and aspects of D&I that need greater focus. Our contributors offer their insight and practical ideas to help organisations and individuals drive change. Tune into our fortnightly podcast.
