Café UCEA

University Council for Educational Administration

We unpack the social constructs and systems of thinking about education through the story of our guests’ pursuits. Our aim is to reframe your notions of learning and schooling through real stories from people who are questioning the way we do things and who have made, or are in the process of making, change.

Experiences of Asian Americans Informs Leadership Preparation, Equity, and Inclusion

Experiences of Asian Americans Informs Leadership Preparation, Equity, and Inclusion
What do the experiences of Asian Americans bring to the conversation on leadership preparation, equity, and inclusion? Dr. Irene Yoon from the University of Utah holds a conversation with Dr. Rebecca Cheung, University of California Berkeley, and Jeff Lam, Franklin High School in Seattle, WA. Dr. Yoon's Show Notes There are many Asian American scholars who study leadership inclusive of, but not specifically on, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in UCEA and AERA Division A. However, a few scholars who study Asian American leaders’ experiences and theorize Asian American leadership specifically are Daniel D. Liou and Jia Grace Liang. Scholars of Asian American leadership and policy who are outside of our immediate field are Kevin Kumashiro, Bic Ngo, Yoon Pak, Monisha Bajaj, Debra Kawabata, Jean Lau Chin, and Christopher TH Liang. There are more students and practitioners who are studying Asian American and Pacific Islander youth leadership, community leadership, Asian American studies, Asian American issues in education and teacher education, and business leadership. It’s an exciting time of growth for Asian American voices in academia. Online Community If you’re an Asian American educator and would like to find and participate in an online community, follow @miseducAsian or search for our Twitter chats using the #miseducAsian hashtag. We chat on Twitter on the first Wednesday of every month. Organizations For Asian American educational organizations, check out the Yuri Education Project (yurieducationproject.com) or AALDEF, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund. Podcasts There are so many podcasts related to Asian America now. Some are Asian Enough, Asian American History 101, Throughline (led by two South Asians, with a broader interest in undertold histories), Self Evident, and AAWW (Asian American Writers Workshop). There are many collectives, advocacy groups, and non-profits online. Just search Twitter or Instagram and you’ll be led from one to the next. This list is very incomplete and is surely missing important people and organizations. That is my error and I sincerely apologize. I hope people reply to this episode with more leads so that we can all find each other and support each other in building justice for all of us. Episode Credits Senior Producer: Mónica Byrne Jimenez.
