Feedback form is now closed.
In the summer of 2020, five associates came together to form an employee resource group (ERG) for Asian associates at Red Hat. Over many months through numerous bureaucratic obstacles and doubts, the Red Hat Asian Network was developed and finally launched in February 2021 around Lunar New Year. This session will discuss the ins and outs of navigating logistics as well as the benefits provided by forming this ERG. The Asian Network has emphasized intersectionality and partnerships with other DEI groups in order to amplify a collective voice in establishing a place where all can bring their full authentic selves. We will walk through the value of these partnerships as well as share stories of how associates found a place of belonging during a great time of difficulty caused by the pandemic and the rise anti-Asian violence and sentiment.
