Support Strategies for Asian American Women Leaders in Massachusetts

The election and appointment of Asian American women to positions in Massachusetts and on the federal level suggest that the face of public leadership is changing. Through this study, Lisa Wong aimed to identify strategies to increase the number of Asian American women elected to political office in the commonwealth. In addition to drawing from her personal experiences as an Asian American elected official, Wong interviewed three Asian American female political leaders and three young Asian American women newly interested in politics. Among other findings, the interviews demonstrated that culture and family currently play a strong role in the decision making process of Asian American women considering active involvement in politics.
