Asian American and Practicing Law:
An Evening of Sharing Stories from Big Law to Nonprofits

"Diversity Initiatives." The bamboo ceiling. Race, class, and gender politics. The American Dream. Sound familiar?

Helen Wan, attorney and author, will read from her new book, The Partner Track, about an Asian American woman about to make partner at a large law firm and the impact of race, gender, and class.  Join us for an evening of sharing stories about navigating the legal jungle as an Asian American. We will talk about inclusion, diversity and the ups and downs Asian American lawyers face, from working in nonprofits, public office, private practice, or climbing the corporate ladder.
