REAL Talk Shows Determination to Fight Racism Against Asian Americans - CMBA News and Information

CMBA Updates & Legal News


Posted by: Brennan Donnellan on Apr 6, 2021

 

Through unity and leadership, we can all help put an end to the recent violence against Asian Americans. While this REAL Talk was planned before the killings in Atlanta, that tragedy looms large over the discussion of hate against members of the Asian American community. This discussion was a partnership between CMBA's Diversity and Inclusion Committee, our Women In Law Section and our Affinity Bars:

The Asian American Bar Association of Ohio
The Norman S. Minor Bar Association
The Filipino American Lawyers Association of Ohio
The Arab American Bar Association of Ohio
The South Asian Bar Association of Ohio

Nearly 100 participants joined a diverse panel of leaders in search of solutions on Tuessday, April 4, 2021 at Noon. If you couldn't be among them, or if you want to hear this discussion again, watch the video above.

Moderator: Latha M. Srinivasan, First Energy

Panelists:

Tera Coleman, BakerHostetler
Jath Shao, Herman Legal Group
Jessica Paine, Director of Community Programs
Arthur Chan, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Strategist
David A. Valent, Counsel, Cleveland Clinic
Awatef Assad, Risk Manager, Cuyahoga County
