To the mostly white leadership teams across the US: Don’t just stand* with the Asian community. Act.

*Note: As many organizations are using language “standing” with their Asian employees, this language is intentionally included as an example of what to avoid. Although the language may be an attempt to evoke feelings of assertion, the metaphor linking the physical ability to stand with a sentiment of courage and action is rooted in ableist ideas that erase many in the disabled community who cannot stand physically.
