In a panel discussion, members of Asian American communities will share their stories and experiences of the ongoing pandemic, including how those stories have been shaped by their unique identities and backgrounds.

Stand Against Racism is a yearly series that brings information on and perspective to the most relevant and timely issues in diversity and inclusion. This year, we are splitting our series between COVID-19 and systemic racism. COVID-19 has impacted our communities of color differently. The virus and response to the pandemic has shed a light on underlying disparities in healthcare, resources, assets, as well as cultural differences and the overall impacts of systemic racism.
