About AAJA Women and Non-Binary Voices
AAJA Women & Non-Binary Voices is an inclusive support group for women, non-binary and other gender non-conforming AAJA members to promote a plurality of Asian voices. We also welcome non-feminine identifying allies to join and show their support for their colleagues.
This group will provide a network of supporters and mentors for our members, who can share their intersectional experiences and help each other navigate different workplace situations. We envision this to be a space where members can build each other up as well as discuss any work-related challenges they may be facing—whether it’s salary negotiation, a career switch, safe reporting procedures, workplace microaggressions or harassment and discrimination of any sort.
The idea for this group was born in light of the #MeToo movement. While the movement has publicly illuminated many safety issues for women in the workplace, we acknowledge that these challenges, along with many others mentioned above, continue for many people who experience misogyny, and are made more complex by the diversity in our identities. In creating this space, we acknowledge the nuances of such challenges and aim to provide support for our members accordingly.
