Title Anti-Asian Racism in Medical Education: Learning, Unlearning and Taking Action
Rationale/Background The Model Minority myth focuses on stereotypes that all Asians are hard working, rule-abiding, independent, & economically prosperous. This myth perpetuates the biases leading to anti-Asian racism and hides the barriers (interpersonal & systemic levels). The term "bamboo ceiling" was coined to reflect the limits forAsians in leadership. While all Asians may share in some experiences of anti-Asian racism, caution must be taken when clustering together Asian ethnicities. For example, at the macro level, it may seem like there is adequate representation of Asian-Canadians in medical schools, however, clustering Asians as one group misses the underrepresentation of certain Asian ethnicities. Through stories, dialogue & small group activities, we hope to foster an inclusive learning environment highlighting issues around Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity, & Accessibility (EDIA) and help participants further develop as allies and anti-racists
