Asian American women fall off by 80% at corporate leadership levels, a new report says

The model minority stereotype may depict Asian Americans as uniformly successful, but a new report exposes how the racial group continues to struggle with advancement in the workplace, particularly Asian American women. 

New analysis released by the management consulting company McKinsey found that while Asian Americans are heavily represented in corporate jobs, their presence drops off significantly at the board of director level, with Asian American women experiencing a particularly severe drop, at 80%. 

“It’s not the responsibility of Asian women to fix all of the issues that affect Asian women,” said Michael Chui, a partner at McKinsey who co-authored the study. "It is the responsibility of all of us. And to the extent to which there are more men, we who are men need to help address this problem.” 

The racial group, particularly those who are immigrants, is overrepresented in low-paying occupations, including manicurists and cooks. But it is also overrepresented in high-paying professions like the tech industry, with the simultaneous demographics contributing to the highest income inequality among races in the U.S. 

"It is the responsibility of all of us. And to the extent to which there are more men, we who are men need to help address this problem.”
