Over the last 18 months, the United States has seen a spike in anti-Asian hate crimes, underscored by viral videos and news reports of violence against Asians and Asian Americans. In response has come also greater awareness of the discrimination and mistreatment faced by those of Asian American and Pacific Island heritage (AAPI), as well as new state and federal legislation, landmark philanthropic initiatives, and business support to "stop Asian hate." Pushing back against common stereotypes like the "model minority myth," the AAPI community has fought for progress across all industries, championing change from the legislative floor to the red carpet of Hollywood. Panelists will discuss how government, businesses, and civil society can drive change, revitalize inclusivity, and promote a better sense of belonging—a tide that lifts all boats.
