Addressing Anti-Asian Racism
COVID-19 has impacted us all but impacted the Chinese and East Asian communities more severely, with the additional virus of anti-Asian racism.
In response, we have carried out a series of anti-racism activities, including public awareness campaigns and a series of 15 educational webinars, with topics on Racism and Its Visible and Invisible Forms, Discrimination and Human Rights, Responding to Racist Harassments and Attacks, Bystander Intervention, Preventing Racial Bullying in School, and Reporting Hate Crime and Hate Incidents.
These contents form the basis of an educational pamphlet that is being produced in English, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Filipino and will be distributed to Asian communities across Canada.
We have also repeatedly petitioned all levels of government to recognize the severity of anti-Asian racism and take concrete steps to address it as an important part of their overall anti-racism strategies. We are part of Mayor Tory’s Roundtable on Anti-Asian Racism and have been supporting Toronto District School Board in implementing the Addressing Anti-Asian Racism Educator’s Resource. Our efforts have contributed to important progress and changes in government policies and initiatives.
Research on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
One of our focuses is research-based advocacy. The recently released report of our research study, Underrepresentation of Chinese Canadian Leadership in the Greater Toronto Area, reveals that Chinese Canadians make up over 11% of the GTA population, but represent only 2% of top executives and board members in the largest organizations across all major sectors. The study also identifies systemic barriers and offers systemic solutions.
