How have long-held but erroneous stereotypes about Asian Americans perpetuated implicit bias?

Due to the alarming rise of hate incidents and crimes against the AAPI community since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the Illinois legislature and Governor J.B. Pritzker passed the TEAACH Act that mandates a unit of AAPI history be taught in all K-12 public schools in Illinois beginning this fall.

This presentation focuses on long-held but erroneous stereotypes about Asian Americans and their impact on perpetuating implicit bias in our classrooms and in society. An overview of Asian immigrant groups will provide historical context to enhance empathy and awareness of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) experience in America. Linda Matsumoto leads this deep dive into institutional bias against the Asian diaspora from a cross-cultural perspective that is not monolithic, but rich in cultural diversity.

Linda Matsumoto has been an educator with Evanston/Skokie School District 65 since 2013. A former journalist with the Chicago Tribune, she was also an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College and served a decade in top public affairs posts with cultural arts institutions, including The Art Institute of Chicago. Linda has worked in media relations for Northwestern University and was the lead spokesperson for the Chicago Board of Education and Press Secretary for the Superintendent of the Chicago Public Schools. She has been a panelist at several cross-cultural education seminars and has been invited by the National Education Association to present her AAPI Cultural Competency workshop at next year's annual Leadership Summit. Her presentation focuses on Asian stereotypes and their impact on perpetuating implicit bias in our society.
