But often the opposite is true. Our research has found that Asian Americans, especially women, often face significant career hurdles tied to perceptions about ethnicity and race. For one approach, we developed a minute survey that picks up major patterns of racial and gender bias. When we gave an early version to more than 3, American engineers, Asian American men and women were much more likely than white men to report that they had to prove themselves more than their colleagues.

The term has also referred to the belief and fear that East Asian societies would invade and attack Western societies, wage war with them and lead to their eventual destruction, demise and eradication.
Asian Americans graduate from university at far higher rates than white Americans, but despite this are no more likely to hold professional or managerial jobs, according to a new study. The findings suggest that Asian Americans face additional barriers and discrimination when trying to climb the career ladder at work, a phenomenon known as the 'bamboo ceiling', an invisible barrier akin to the 'glass ceiling' faced by women. It has long been known that the US-born children of Asian immigrants--a population known as the "Asian second generation" are not only more likely to be college-educated than the US general population, but are also more likely to graduate from the nation's elite universities. While Asian Americans make up only 6.
