On May 27, the Museum of Public Relations presented its first-ever “Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month” event to explore the many issues impacting the fastest growing population in the U.S. today: the changing Asian American and Pacific Islander (APIs) demographic. During this online webcast, we explored identity; stereotypes; intersectionality; the Asian Model Minority Myth; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI); and changing API demographics in the U.S. Senior and younger API professionals—representing public relations, advertising, media, journalism and entertainment—shared their personal stories and discussed why DEI is critical for organizations who want to survive and thrive beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
