ACS Dallas-Fort Worth: Workplace Discriminations Against Asians
Asian Americans have reported a significant level of discrimination since the emergence of coronavirus in 2020. Among Asian Americans 39% said others have acted uncomfortably around them; 31% reported being the subject of race-based jokes or slurs; and 26% admitted they feared being the target of a physical attack.
The Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) tools available to Asian Americans and other federal and state discrimination, harassment, and diversity laws may not adequately address this re-emerging problem.
Join the Dallas Asian American bar association and the ACS Dallas-Fort Worth Lawyer Chapter for a fast-paced session that will offer strategy tips, good practices that attorneys can identify, and showcase how to address anti-discrimination, anti-harassment, and affirmative action/diversity/inclusion faced by the Asian American community.
This program is intended for lawyers who do not practice in employment law or corporate arena, but it is well-suited for experienced labor and employment attorneys.
This panel will feature:
Christopher Ho, Senior Counsel, the Legal Aid at Work (California)
Meyling Ortiz, Managing Counsel of the Labor & Employment Department, Toyota Motor North America
Moderated by :
Leo Yu, Senior Assistant City Attorney of Dallas; Member, ACS Dallas-Fort Worth Lawyer Chapter Board of Directors
