People Don’t Get that Worked Up about Racist Indian & Asian Stuff

An interactive presentation by Dr. Drew Ishii

12-1 pm & 1:30-2:30 pm Cooperage 3

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are often labeled as the “model minority” where they are unfairly generalized and stereotyped, which means that their actual experiences and identity are rendered invisible or invalid. In each session, we will explore the complexities and invisibility that people with AAPI heritage encounter in society.

Dr. Drew Ishii earned his PhD in Math Education at The Ohio State University. A former teacher educator, Drew currently teaches at Sage Hill School, an independent high school. As a diversity practitioner, he has facilitated AAPI affinity groups, spoken at national and international conferences, and trained faculty in diversity issues.

Light refreshments will be served!
