Part Three: Dismantling Anti-Asian Racism in Canada

Friday, May 14, 2021, 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

In Part Three of our series, we will focus on the recent tragic increase in violence against Asian and Pacific Islander communities in North America, and how commercial real estate and wider communities can work to dismantle anti-Asian racism in Canada. The discussion will explore:

  • Why anti-Asian racism is unique, with aspects such as the "perpetual foreigner" myth, the model minority principle, code switching, and the increase of the "yellow peril" myth in the aftermath of COVID-19,
  • Individual vs systemic racism,
  • Current leadership and the next generation of leadership, and the need for disruptive leadership,
  • The way forward.

The webinar will be moderated by Michael Brooks, CEO, REALPAC.
