    Underemployed | 6 Reasons it Exists (& Hurt Women More)  Underemployment is a new normal where millennials with higher education work in the labor force while being overeducated and overqualified in part-time or full-time positions. This episode explores why you may be underemployed, and the meaning of underemployment and why underemployment exists, especially for long-term unemployed women or fulltime mothers who are trying to transition back into the workforce from long-term unemployment.

    How to Break the Bamboo Ceiling | 5 Ways that Work for Asians

    How to Break the Bamboo Ceiling | 5 Ways that Work for Asians  

    This episode covers how to crack or smash the bamboo ceiling for Asian American immigrants and their children. The Asian immigrant glass ceiling requires a new Asian American playbook that involves building social capital, cultural capital, soft skills, social skills, and leadership skills to build trust to climb the corporate ladder. This episode reveals the sociology and psychology on how to navigate this process through methods such as finding mentors and sponsors, networking, identifying good workplaces, and differentiating the approaches of calling out vs. calling in.

    The Bamboo Ceiling | 2nd Generation Asian American Workplace Challenges

    The Bamboo Ceiling | 2nd Generation Asian American Workplace Challenges

    The Bamboo Ceiling | 2nd Generation Asian American Workplace Challenges  

    The bamboo ceiling for 2nd generation Asian Americans in the West is a glass ceiling for the children of immigrants who are ethnic minorities from Asia. In this video, I cover the implicit biases and discuss the implicit association test (IAT) and the common stereotypes that Asians face with the bamboo ceiling. By outlining the problem, we can look at ways of breaking the bamboo ceiling by reinventing what Margaret Chin calls the "Asian American playbook" in her book Stuck: Why Asian Americans Don't Reach the Top of the Corporate Ladder, to circumvent discrimination by discussing Susan Fiske’s stereotype content model and other sociological research.
