AAPI Data and SurveyMonkey released results of their fourth annual survey on AANHPI experiences around work, representation, hate crimes, and more.

AAPI Data and SurveyMonkey’s fourth installment of their annual survey partnership provides new insights into Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) attitudes and experiences in American workplaces and communities, particularly in contrast to other racial and ethnic groups.

Key Themes:

  • Asians, American Indians, or Alaskan Natives (AIAN), and Native Hawaiians or Pacific Islanders (NHPI) are much more likely to identify as American than their racial group or heritage in a professional setting. But in personal settings, the script flips, suggesting potential barriers to identity expression in the workplace.
  • Asian workers feel a lack of leadership representation at work and continue to look to employee resource groups for support.
  • Asian Americans remain hesitant to report hate crimes, and nearly one-third feel less safe in public spaces compared to last year.
  • Racial slurs are the most common form of discrimination against people of color, and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders experience the highest rates of such incidents.
