Q&A Discussion with Jane Hyun, author of
Leadership Toolkit For Asians.

A collaboration with the University of Kansas CEAS (Center for East Asian Studies)

Thursday, September 12, 2024
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm (CDT)
A Virtual Event
 (The ZOOM Link will be in the registration confirmation email)

How can Asian Americans lead and influence in a way that feels culturally authentic?

19 years after her groundbreaking book Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling, global leadership strategist Jane Hyun unveils Leadership Toolkit for Asians – a guide for Asian Americans to build their capacity to lead and influence with a blueprint that is achievable and culturally relevant.

Asian Americans are the least likely demographic to be promoted or to have a mentor or sponsor– they make up 13% of the professional workforce, but less than 3% of executive positions. This dynamic hurts everyone, and the solution calls for us to embrace our unique perspectives while organizations create a more fertile environment for growing Asian talent.

This toolkit—based on Hyun’s work with thousands of leaders—is filled with self-assessments, checklists, quizzes, and stories of Asian American leaders to help you put ideas into action. It will show you how to leverage your life experiences to craft a bespoke leadership journey.
