According to the Pew Research Center, the U.S. Asian population is diverse. A record 20 million Asian Americans trace their roots to more than 20 countries in East and Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent, each with unique histories, cultures, languages and other characteristics. The U.S. Asian population grew 72% between 2000 and 2015 (from 11.9 million to 20.4 million), the fastest growth rate of any major racial or ethnic group. The median annual household income of households headed by Asian Americans is $73,060, compared with $53,600 among all U.S. households. About half of Asians ages 25 and older (51%) have a bachelor’s degree or more, compared with 30% of all Americans this age. Yet in a recent study it was found that Asian Americans Are the Least Likely Group in the U.S. to Be Promoted to Management. Also many companies choose to lump all Asians into a single group for representation which can be detrimental for your business.

This session looks at key research by Community Business into the differences between Western and Asian perspectives in the workplace, talent and leadership. It also looks at the diversity of Asia and Asians, providing an explanation as to why, companies need to pay more attention to how they treat their Asian employees and customers.

Learning Outcomes
  • Learn about key differences in the perspective of Western and Asian leadership and working styles.
  • Understand the diversity of Asian talent and customers.
  • Have some key takeaways on how to engage Asian talent and customers differently.
