The Asia Society this week released its annual Asian Pacific Americans Corporate Survey and it revealed Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders still face barriers in advancing beyond middle management, reports the China Daily.
50 percent of Asian Americans surveyed say they are not included or unaware of what their companies are doing to grab the APA market.
Only 40 percent believe there is adequate representation on their company’s board of directors.
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders from Fortune 500 companies were surveyed.
Despite the perceived lack of engagement by these employees from their employers, a resounding 95.4% say they care about the success of their company.
60 percent say they’ll stay with their employer for at least five years.
