Award-winning Anchor Juju Chang to Discuss Unconscious Bias in UK Virtual Event
Unconscious Bias: Anti-Asian Bashing in the Age of COVID
Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020
Speaker: Juju Chang, Emmy Award-winning co-anchor for ABC Nightline and Good Morning America.
Juju Chang, Emmy Award-winning co-anchor, shares how seemingly harmless perceptions of Asian Americans as "foreigners" can be weaponized by racialized statements like "Chinese virus" or "Wuhan flu." She investigates the increase of reports of these types of incendiary comments and thousands of racial abuse acts against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) within weeks of the outbreak.
This presentation is sponsored by the Confucius Institute and is part of International Education Week.
