Here to Help: How an IRG and Allyship Combat Covid-19’s Impact on the Asian Community
December 2, 2020
In Here to Help, we’ll take a closer look at how working teams have responded to COVID-19, and adapted to the many changes it has brought to the world of work. The series features deep-dive conversations between CEO Chris Hyams and other leaders at Indeed, addressing the impact and complexities of this truly unique situation. No community has remained untouched by COVID-19. For the Asian community, the pandemic has resulted in a rise in racism and xenophobia. Howard Shin is the regional co-chair of the Asian Network Inclusion Resource Group at Indeed. Though he grew up in the U.S., Howard was raised in a very traditional Korean way. Part of that background included a lesson from his parents — because of his background, he would “need to work harder than others and his American peers.” Shin speaks to Chris Hyams about Indeed’s Asian Network IRG and its work and explains how allyship plays an important role in battling racism.
