For organizations seeking to compete in today's global marketplace, the ability to understand the perspectives of employees and customers from a variety of cultural backgrounds is paramount. Yet even the most seasoned executives can feel ill-equipped to handle the challenges of motivating increasingly diverse multicultural teams.
In a special presentation hosted by Asia Society Texas Center, noted business consultant Jane Hyun, president and founder of Hyun & Associates, shares how Asian cultural differences operate inside organizations and explores ways businesses can build better teams and grow.
Bamboo Ceiling cover
Aiming her talk at both Asian-Americans and non-Asian-Americans, managers and employees, she offers information people can use, based on the inspiring case studies from Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling. ®
Themes will include: Understanding your cultural lenses; reaching the top and barriers along the way; and mentoring across cultures to achieve business success.
The presentation is free and open to the public, and all business sectors are invited. After her talk Hyun will sign copies of her book Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians.
Before founding her own company, Jane Hyun was vice president of Human Resources/Talent Development at JP Morgan and director of recruiting at Deloitte & Touche and Resources Connection. She is a graduate of Cornell University with a degree in economics and international studies.
The second installment in the year's two-part BP Diversity Series will be offered in the spring. Details to come.
