All Programs

Every client is different and I can make a custom presentation for your organization. However, here are a list of current programs. Why so many programs? Different industries, different professions and I also train Asian Allies who are committed to make a difference in their communities.

Aren’t Asians All Alike? The Forgotten Americans

Did you know that 42% of Americans can’t name a single prominent Asian American? Even though Washington has the 4th largest Asian American population, many people still struggle to name Asian Americans. But what does this mean for you as a non-Asian, and for the people around you? During times of foreign relation conflicts with China, Asian Americans often face hate and discrimination. This is a significant problem.

This program delves into Asian American culture, challenges faced by the community, and practical strategies for creating more inclusive events, all in a gamified format.

  •   Gain insights into how perceptions of Asians are shaped by stereotypes and pop culture, and develop a more realistic understanding of Asian American perspectives.
  •   Unpack the harmful effects of yellow face, whitewashing, and the model minority myth in Hollywood and beyond, and understand their impact on Asians in America
  •   Explore the prevalence of microaggressions and the challenges of assimilation faced by Asian Americans, and develop cultural competency and sensitivity in event planning.
  •   Acquire practical strategies for addressing discrimination, safety concerns and allyship

Build your cultural competence, debunk harmful stereotypes, and support a more inclusive community through this eye-opening program. Be the ally the community needs.
