What kinds of problems do AAPI face in the workplace?

In 2020, things changed for Asians.
Across the country, especially in cities like New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Vancouver, and Los Angeles, Asians young and old were being kicked, knifed, and killed.
Many AAPI professionals woke up to the violence, and slowly realized that they were not truly accepted.
Many started to share their challenges at work:

Lost Income

Even just one month of unemployment, loss of stock options, or missed promotion can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.

Damaged Health

Stress, loss of control, even disengagement directly impacts your health, quality of sleep, and longevity.

Wasted Time

Every day spent in a bad working environment is a wasted day of distraction from your life.

Stolen Mojo

Bad situations can kill your spirit, break your self-image, and burden you will baggage and self-doubt.

Conflict

Miscommunication, micro-aggression, or passive-aggressive conflict can hurt productivity.

While the occasional company-wide webinar raises awareness, change happens when your Members are TRANSFORMED.

BUILD SKILLS TODAY TO SEE REAL CHANGE TOMORROW

  • Reversal of historical trends so our future generations rise with hope and power

Common Pitfalls Going It Alone

You may be tempted to get into "do-er" mode alone, be frugal and scrappy in exchange for extra hours, and limit promotion to within your company. But that comes at a cost.

Burn Out

If your volunteer manpower becomes the primary fuel for your ERG, you risk burning out. Or the ERG stagnates because it demands real work, work that isn't compensated for.

Limited Funding

An ERG will slowly run out of steam without additional resources. More importantly, without really investing into your ERG, the company won’t be truly committed.

Constrained Exposure

An internally-run ERG will have limited external exposure. Without broader exposure, your efforts will be limited to within your company instead of helping to shape the industry.

Instead of going it alone, what if you were to partner with an external organization?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FIND THE RIGHT PARTNER?

The right partner should help you to solve not only the challenges that AAPI face in the work place.  
It should also help you to run your ERG so that you're not burning out, not under resourced, and not limited in your scope of impact in the broader community and industry.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE. MAKE REAL IMPACT.

  • AMPLIFY SUCCESS

    Improve on-going investment and impact your industry with external communications.
    We centralize and amplify success of all of our ERGs. This makes it easier for you to share internally for support; it also makes it easier for other ERGs to follow suit and succeed with their company.

  • ACCESS BUDGETS

    Increase your impact by tapping into your company's budgets.  
    We provide you a market-anchored price that permits flexible budgeting and collateral that helps justify the spend, strengthening your position to successfully request funding.

  • FREE YOUR TIME

    Free up your time and expand your leadership working on, not in, the operations.  
    We provide content, logistics, and infrastructure. In terms of getting approvals, provide resources and even deliver the presentations, letting you act as one of the decision-makers.

Interested? The Next Steps are Easy!

1

Schedule Strategy Session

In this complimentary call (or calls, if we need to), we learn about your ERG, you company, and you. We plan together the presentation we would make to the decision-makers to approve funding the program.

2

Present Proposal

We provide you with templates for setting up meetings with the decision-makers. At the meetings, we will present and you participate as if you were also a decision-maker. We describe why this is important in our strategy meeting.

3

Onboard Your Members

Once invoices have been approved, you provide us with the names and emails of Members. We match them into Cohorts. Then run the program for a year, all the while providing you updates, testimonials, and content to continue the program the following year.

FAQ

On this page, you will find answers to the most popular questions of our customers. Didn’t find what you need? Just send us a request.

  • How can my ERG participate?

    Schedule a strategy call. This helps us to align with your goals, understand your company, and share the roadmap for how we onboard your Members.

  • Who pays for enrollment?

    Either the company or individual ERG Members can pay themselves. However, we believe there are better outcomes with the company invests (either directly or through employee reimbursement)

  • What payment options do you provide?

    We accept credit cards and can provide invoices to corporate customers.

  • Can individuals pay and we reimburse them?

    Yes! That is the most convenient process for all parties. You can still provide us with emails of those who should be enrolled to streamline the Onboarding process.

  • Is the program only for AAPI?

    No, it was initially designed for those with heavily cross-functional responsibilities, such as product management or product marketing.  
    Because we are working directly with AAPI ERG, we customized this page and the content for the next cohort to address AAPI issues.

  • How long is the program?

    Each Cohort runs for 12 months. Participation can be renewed since the content is being refreshed and, more importantly, the ongoing interaction with cohorts is what builds the leadership skills.
