The Myth of the Model Minority & the Actions that Help Break the System
For AAPI heritage month Zapproved will be joined by community leaders Zhou Fang & Hazel Valdez as they share their stories navigating and debunking the model minority myth.
We will learn about how the model minority myth perpetuates a narrative in which Asian Americans are seen as a polite, a law-abiding group who have achieved a higher level of success than the general public through a combination of innate talent and hard work. We will answer the question:
What could be so bad about being part of a group that’s seen as successful?
Join Zapproved and our speakers for a candid conversation that speaks from the heart.
We invite you to submit questions and/or topics of discussion for our guests during your registration process.
