C100 Webinar: "Asian American Career Ceilings: Voting and Representation"

  • September 20, 2023
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Online

The thirtieth Committee of 100 (C100) Asian American Career Ceilings Initiative virtual event will feature a fireside chat on the topic of "Voting and Representation" on September 20, 2023, from 4:00 to 5:00pm ET (1:00 to 2:00pm PT).

This discussion will spotlight three leading Asian American experts: Christine Chen, Executive Director and Co-founder of Asian Pacific Islander American Vote (APIAVote) and Committee of 100 member; Madalene Mielke, President & CEO, Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS); and Gregg Orton, National Director, The National Council of Asian Pacific Americans. Peter Young, Chair of the Committee of 100 Asian American Career Ceilings Initiative and a Committee of 100 Member, will be the moderator.

A noticeable weakness on the part of Asian Americans historically has been a lack of Asian American government representatives in many parts of the country relative to their percentage of the population. In addition, their inability to exert voting influence relative to other minority groups poses issues. This clearly influences a wide variety of rights and protections of Asian Americans, including how laws affecting career ceilings have been enacted. The three panelists will highlight what they perceive as key issues along these lines, where they believe problems do and do not exist, potential causes of these issues, what Asian Americans can do to help, and how the panelists’ organizations are making a difference.

The webinar will include a panel discussion, Q&A, and a thirty-minute virtual networking session to conclude. There is no fee to attend.
