Can you truly bring your authentic self to work? ASSIMILATION – learn about the pressures on Asian Americans to conform
In this discussion, we’ll discuss assimilation and why many Asian American co-workers and friends don’t openly showcase their cultural heritage. Through candid conversations and personal stories, we’ll delve into the various factors that influence assimilation, from societal pressure to cultural expectations.
🌺 Imagine a world where we welcome our co-workers and friends to bring their authentic selves to the table, including their chosen name and cultural heritage.
🌺 Picture the possibilities of getting to know a whole other side of someone you never knew before.
🌺 Think about the freedom they would experience by being themselves, and not having to constantly code-switch to fit in.
Majority folks stand to gain a lot by learning about people’s rich backgrounds and experiences. By creating more welcoming environments, we can open up our minds to new perspectives and foster greater understanding and empathy.
We’ll examine the impact that assimilation has on individuals and communities, and we’ll discuss how we can work together to create a brighter environment.
