“I Am Not a Virus”: A Discussion on the Impact of COVID-19 on the Asian Community

A panel of experts discuss xenophobia and racism in America towards Asian Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Friday, April 24, Asian Network, an Indeed Inclusion Resource Group (IRG), hosted a panel event to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the Asian Community and the issues of racism and xenophobia toward Asians. 

Special guest speakers included John C. Yang, President and Executive Director for Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Dr. Russelll Jeung, Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, and Amy Wong Mok, Founder and CEO of the Asian American Culture Center in Austin, Texas. The event was moderated by LaFawn Davis‍, Indeed’s VP of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging. 

At Indeed, IRGs are employee-led groups formed around traditionally underrepresented or marginalized groups in tech (in numbers or power) that actively contribute to efforts specific to Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging. Asian Network’s mission is to celebrate and raise awareness of Asian cultures within Indeed, support recruitment and retention initiatives, and improve the job seeker experience.
