Employment Discrimination and Asian American Communities

Maria Flores, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), will speak about “Civil Rights Focus: Employment Discrimination Issues Faced by Asian American Communities” on Thurs., Feb. 23, from 3:30pm-4:30pm in UC 275A. It’s part of the Southeast Asian Heritage Lecture Series!

You can learn more, and Andersen Library can help! The EEOC has a web page on Asian-Americans in the American Workforce. Search Library databases to find articles such as “Culture matters: Cultural differences in the reporting of employment discrimination claims” (William and Mary Bill of Rights Journal, 2011, vol.20, pp.405-1373), “Spatial assimilation and its discontents: Asian ethnic neighborhood change in California (Urban Geography, 2016 published online, pp.1-26), and “Korean entrepreneurs in Kansas City metropolitan area” (Journal of Enterprising Communities, 2014, vol.8:no.4, pp.287-299), and books such as The contemporary Asian American experience: Beyond the model minority (available from other UW libraries via free UW Request service, by which requested items typically take 2-5 weekdays to arrive) and Asian American women and men: Labor, laws, and love (3rd-Floor Main Collection, E184.A75 E85 2008).

If you’d like assistance with finding additional resources, please ask a librarian (choose chat or email, phone 262-472-1032, or visit the Reference Desk).
