North Texas Pan Asian nonprofit releases white paper debunking “model minority” myths

Written by Laura Wood

North Texas nonprofit, Ascend Leadership Foundation, announced the release of its latest white paper titled Model Minority Myth & The Double-Edged Sword. The paper addresses the popular American narrative of Asian Americans being perceived as the “model minority” and how this stereotype masks the bias that Asian Americans face in the workplace, in schools and in the communities in which they reside.

The Ascend Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Pan-Asian organization primarily engaged in research with a mission to advocate, enable and assist Pan-Asians in North America to become the leaders of today and tomorrow.
