Asian Women in Science and Technology: An Invisible Minority in a Double Bind

Dear Fellow Asian Americans:

Are Asian Americans doing fine in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers?
Because we are well represented and excel technically?

Wrong! In particular, Asian women face a double bind: a bamboo ceiling because of Asian
stereotyping and a glass ceiling because of implicit gender bias. Full report here.



80-20 carefully collect and publicize QUANTITATIVE social study data to effect policy
changes in government, academia and private industry. We advocate Asian American interests
using OBJECTIVE criteria: (1) Are our achievements commensurate with our qualifications?
(2) If not, ask the government to enforce existing laws (such as EO 11246).
