Kavitha Prabhakar on Supporting Asian-American and Pacific Island Employees
Show Notes

Asian-American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are no strangers to adversity in the workplace, but their experience often doesn’t receive much attention because of longstanding positive stereotypes of AAPI as hard workers and good employees. In this episode of All Things Work, Kavitha Prabhakar, Deloitte’s chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, joins host Tony Lee to discuss how these frequent biases adversely impact AAPI employees’ career paths and work experiences, and how employers can help their AAPI employees grow and advance in the workplace.
