Read and Wine: Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling May Edition

May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Asian Americans represent 27% of professionals in the U.S., but only half that among executives. White men and women are 154% more likely than Asians to hold an executive role. Have you wondered if Asian culture and values may place a role in the leadership representation ceiling for Asians in America? If yes, how to improve the situation? Are there any practical solutions for resolving misunderstandings and overcoming challenges in an increasingly multicultural workplace? Leading Asian American career coach and advocate Jane Hyun explains the questions above in this book. 

For the Asian reader, the book will help them to see the cultural barriers they subconsciously place in their own career paths and how to overcome them. For the non-Asian reader, the book serves as a primer for promoting optimal working relationships with Asians, and will help start a dialogue that will benefit all. 

To celebrate all the wines made in American by Asian Americans and Pacific Islander, please visit https://thewinedaily.com/2021/04/13/asian-owned-wineries-winemakers/. The one available at the McLean, VA Total Wine & More is Sandhi Chardonnay Wine. Master Sommelier and Michael Mina Restaurants wine director Indian-American Rajat Parr founded Sandhi Wines with winemaker Sashi Moorman, Japanese-American, to craft singular Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Santa Barbara terroir. To maximize complexity and flavor, Sandhi Wines are grown only from old vine, cool-climate sites and fermented without added sugars, acids, fining agents, yeasts, or enzymes.
