Beating the Odds: Asian Women Leaders in Academic Research Libraries
In the United States, Asians are the least likely among all races to become executives, in spite of having the highest educational attainment, according to public data. A recent Ithaka S+R survey of ARL Libraries reveals that the proportion of Asian and Asian Americans in libraries decreases as positions become more senior. A panel of Asian women deans and associate deans from academic research libraries will discuss how they broke the so-called ‘Bamboo Ceiling’ and got to where they are. They will describe the barriers they faced and how they overcame them. The panel intends to inspire future generations, inform hiring managers, and expand the definition of leadership. (Note: The panel uses the term “Asian women” to include all people of Asian descent who identify as women.) Panelists: Mihoko Hosoi (Penn State), Adriene Lim (University of Maryland, College Park), Denise Pan (University of Washington), Hilary Seo (Iowa State), Lorelei Tanji (University of California, Irvine). Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) 2021 conference.
