About the Event
Join Thanh & Charis Tazumi as they discuss microaggressions, the model minority myth, and the history of anti-Asian racism in Canada. They will also touch on Western imperialism and how it connects to the hyper-sexualization of Asian women. Thanh will be sharing her experiences as a refugee, an Asian woman in the workplace, and a mother raising two daughters in a predominantly white society. Charis will share her own stories with microaggressions and hyper-sexualization. This session will involve some ideas for confronting implicit bias and how to be an ally.
