Discrimination in America: Experiences and Views of Asian Americans
Discrimination Leads Corporations to See Asian-American Executives as 'Saviors' - Pacific Standard
In making the change, Trump officials are wading into a pitched battle over affirmative action, centered around a high-profile lawsuit against Harvard University. Traits like these—resting on the subjective perceptions of those in positions of authority—have long been fraught terrain for historically marginalized groups in American public life, and not just in higher education but in the workplace, too. Both of these periods are typically taught in American classrooms, but more recent facets of the Asian-American experience may not be. Chinese-Americans increasingly oppose affirmative action , while other Asian-American groups, including Indian-Americans and Filipino-Americans, are far more supportive of those policies. Finally, as Asian women, we know firsthand that popular stereotypes and biases Asian-Americans face tend to get filtered through the additional lenses of gender, religion, skin color, and more.

The term " bamboo ceiling " was coined in by Jane Hyun in Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians , where she addresses the barriers faced by many Asian Americans in the professional arena, such as stereotypes and racism, while also providing solutions to overcome these barriers. Since the publication of Hyun's book, a variety of sectors including nonprofits, universities, and the government have discussed the impact of the ceiling as it relates to people of Asian descent and the challenges they face. As described by a senior writer at Fortune magazine , "bamboo ceiling" refers to the processes and barriers that serve to exclude Asians and Asian-Americans from executive positions on the basis of subjective factors such as "lack of leadership potential" and "lack of communication skills" that cannot actually be explained by job performance or qualifications. The term is a derivative of the glass ceiling , which refers to the more general metaphor used to describe invisible barriers through which women and minorities can see managerial positions, but cannot reach them.
