This webinar will be the fourteenth in a series of events convened by the Committee of 100 that examine the challenges facing Chinese Americans and other Asian Americans with regard to barriers to advancement in a wide variety of professions in the U.S. The goal of this initiative is to contribute to the already significant efforts of organizations and individuals who have been tackling this issue.

This event will be a fireside chat interview of two Asian American pioneers in corporate America. They will talk about their view of the Asian American Career Ceiling problem, with a focus on the special challenges facing Asian American women. Jenny Ming grew up in the world of retail and Deborah Liu has done the same in technology, so we will get a diversity of perspectives from two important sectors of the economy. In addition to sharing perspectives from their personal experiences, they will also comment on what they have observed more broadly. They will also talk about what each person can do to overcome the obstacles facing Asian American women.

The interview will be conducted by Peter Young, Committee of 100 member and Chair of the Committee of 100 Asian American Career Ceiling Initiative. The webinar will be one hour long. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions during the last ten minutes of the webinar and to talk directly to the panelists and to network for 30 minutes after the panel ends.
