Study Finds Asians Occupying Few Corner Offices-华尔街日报

Roughly 5% of U.S. residents identify themselves as Asian, but less than 2% of executive roles at Fortune 500 companies are held by Asian-American professionals, according to the report from the Center for Work-Life Policy, a New York-based nonprofit think tank.

The Center for Work-Life Policy’s report surveyed 2,952 respondents of all ethnicities, including Asian-Americans (half born in the U.S.), and included follow-up interviews with respondents and with a number of companies that are building career development initiatives for Asian employees.

One-quarter of Asian respondents said they face work-place discrimination, while only 4% of Caucasians believe Asians are treated unfairly on the job, according to the report.

 ‘In Asia, there’s a saying that the loudest duck gets shot; in America it’s: the squeaky wheel gets the grease,’ said Ms. Hyun. ‘These things are totally different and at odds with each other.’
Ecores should start from these observations and facts and move backward to find out why – the case control approach. This is far less riskier than starting from a theory. 
Another thing: Asians expect themselves to win respect by working hard and study hard, but this is a collective bias and does not fly well in reality: you have to force your way out and win respect by interacting with people!
