Panel 1: Strategies to Increase Asian American Representation in C-Suite and Boardroom

Krishnan Rajagopalan

Jeannie Diefenderfer
Ida Liu

Michael Chen

The New Majority overall and Asian Americans in particular are still largely underrepresented in C-Suites and Boardrooms. The top three challenges impeding their rise to the top leadership positions remain the same: a lack of role models, professional growth and career development. Panelists representing some of the largest companies in their respective industries will compare notes on the challenges and will discuss their take on how to address structural, social and empowerment issues that still stand in the way.

Panel 2: New Majority: Building Allyship

Dr. Randal D. Pinkett

Frankie Miranda

Sonal Shah

Similarities in the patterns of oppression are striking and universal. Together, as the New Majority, we stand strong against marginalization of communities of “others”. Solutions for social and economic issues that are needed at this moment in time are more achievable if New Majority communities stand united.
