WorkPride - Community-in-focus Panels for Ethnicity: Asian

With the increasing awareness around intersectionality and its importance, this community-in-focus series of panels on ethnicity explores how our identity combines with ethnicity and the resulting challenges and lived experiences this creates. With a particular focus on Asian communities, this discussion will cover topics including:

- What it means to be LGBTQ+ and Asian

- Identity challenges faced by people of Asian descent 

- Challenges faced by the Asian diaspora

- The impact of being out in an Asian family

- The lived experiences of Asian communities during and after Covid-19
