Today’s Tip Support Your Asian American Employees and Colleagues

The recent wave of anti-Asian racism in the U.S. is a workplace issue. Asian Americans are fearful, upset, and hurting right now. As a manager, you need to ensure that you’re providing the support that your colleagues and employees need. Here are four ways to help.

1. Acknowledge what’s happening. Don’t stay silent, dilute the message, or rely on your diversity and inclusion office to speak out.

2. Open your door. Let your team know that resources are available and that you’re there to listen to their experiences and needs.

3. Create a space for a discussion. Some employees may want to talk about what’s going on and how they’re feeling about it.

4. Commit to making real changes — both within and outside of your organization. How can your company culture and policies change to be more inclusive? How can you support AAPI communities outside your walls?
