To advance in their careers, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women in investment management are struggling to break through the “bamboo glass ceiling,” according to the latest report that Backstop co-authored with the Association of Asian American Investment Managers.
Key findings from the study included:
- 80% of AAPI women say the bamboo ceiling effect is real.
- 65% of AAPI women disagree or strongly disagree that opportunities for advancement are equitable regardless of race or gender.
- 57% of AAPI women said the bamboo ceiling has affected their career.
