There have been many conversations and theories around how the Asian community can grow beyond the “bamboo or glass ceilings” within the corporate world. There are no step by step formulas for success. However, there are things within your control that will increase your chances of being successful and happy along the way. Whether you are an immigrant or first-generation leader, we can’t ignore the role culture, history and the depth of our own self-awareness, plays in our “corporate identity.” Not to mention our own bias and the bias of others. During this interactive workshop, Bindu Garapaty, will provide a cultural framework that looks at key influences and themes leaders need to navigate and grow within the corporate culture. We will explore the impact of history, the role of power (masculine and feminine) and the challenges experienced among different Asian ethnic groups. Dr. Garapaty will share insights gained from working with executives who continue to break barriers and charter new ways of leading. We will also look at the role ‘community’ plays in supporting individual success. Learning outcomes:
Participants will have a deeper understanding of :
• Your personal relationship with power
• How do perceptions, bias and stereotypes impact your power
• How Asians are perceived in leadership and shifting the narrative
• Who is your sponsor?
