Cultural Switching & Gender Judo
Tues, Jan 21st, 6 PM
Lela Lee is an Asian-American actress, cartoonist, television writer, and the creator of the animated cartoons the Angry Little Asian Girl, Five Angry Episodes, and the comic strip Angry Little Girls. In this talk, she focuses on the opposing value systems that often create inner conflict for Asian-American women who often find themselves walking a tightrope with conflicting expectations on each side. What are the solutions to feel whole and valued both at work and at home? Lela uses her own experience to help young women navigate these dual burdens in the workplace.
