Research-Informed Interventions and Leadership: COVID-19 and Anti-Asian Bias

May 7, 2020, 1:00pm - 2:30pm

The training, hosted by San José State University, will be one hour, followed by a 30 minute Q&A session. 

Anti-immigrant sentiment, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, or other forms of bias have always been with us. The current pandemic has seen an exponential rise in anti-Asian discrimination and milder microaggressions. We recognize the horrific disparities in higher morbidity and infection rates for Black/African Americans, Native Americans, and Latinx peoples from COVID-19 across the country. The collective realities have a great impact on the climate, organizational identity, and retention of employees.

Crafted within the complex cultural and political contexts of the Bay Area, this webinar will (1) introduce historical and social psychological frameworks for organizational leaders and team members to understand the dynamics of COVID-19 xenophobia and bias, and (2) offer research-informed interventions and strategies to address anti-Asian bias incidents when they occur in the context of crisis. Target participants span from team members to people who hold positions of leadership in their organizations.
