Be All You Can Be - Set High Career Goals!


Dr. Lee will present on issues related to Asian American librarians and the “glass ceiling” that they face in their career paths. Are we better off today being Asian American librarians than we were 10, 20, or 30 years ago? As a major ethnic minority in the U.S., Asian American librarians are doing relatively well in the profession in recent decades. However, the fact remains that so few Asian American librarians are able to move up to top administrative positions in major academic, public, research, and special libraries. Few are able to break through the glass ceiling. This presentation will discuss key issues in career planning for Asian American librarians and the necessary steps to break through the glass ceiling to be all you can be.
