  • A new study reveals how Asian Americans, particularly Asian American women, continue to struggle with workplace promotions.
  • Researchers found that Asian American women experience a severe drop of 80% in representation and promotion at high levels in senior management positions.
  • Data revealed that while Asian Americans account for 9% of senior vice presidents, there are only 5% of promotions from senior vice president to the C-suite or the high-ranking executive titles. Asian American women reportedly make up less than 1% of these promotions.
  • The researchers suggested constructive starting points, such as collecting more granular data, addressing inclusion challenges, supporting and creating sponsorship opportunities for Asian American workers and addressing Asian American issues as part of corporate responsibility.

Although Asian Americans are heavily represented in corporate jobs, representation and promotion at high levels in senior management positions are significantly lacking, according to a new study. 

There are nearly 20 million Asian Americans who live in the U.S. as citizens, with 8.8 million of them in the workforce. They are reportedly overrepresented in both low-paying occupations, including manicurists and cooks, and in high-paying professions, including technical fields.

Getting a promotion at work can be a struggle for some men. Your stats are good, you’re hitting targets and you’re ready for the next big step. Then you find out the promotion that’s been dangled in front of you for the past three years is going to be given to Larry from the Made-Up Department.

If you’re really clueless as to what happened, as you know you deserve it more than Larry, take a good look in the mirror. You might have a horrible condition called: being handsome.

Are You a Micromanager? Take This Quiz to Find Out

Are new, innovative ideas not flowing from your employees? Do you believe nothing will get done right if you aren’t involved? You’re probably a micromanager.

Micromanagers can suffocate their employees, and ultimately, their companies. Millennial workers, in particular, are not down with micromanagement: they tend to be self-starters who want to matter and belong beyond their occupational roles. As millennials begin to overtake the American workplace, micromanagement will have to leave it, even if employers do think Generation Y needs hand-holding (and indeed, even if Generation Y expects it).
