Buck Gee speaks on "The Failure of Asian Success"

 

A4P and PA3 invite you 

to hear Buck Gee discuss

The Failure of Asian Success

Despite the fact that Asian Americans are the highest educated demographic, a new analysis of national EEOC data reveals that Asian American men and women reach management levels at rates lower than black, Hispanic, and white men or women.  Surprisingly, the analysis finds that racial factors appear to be more significant than gender in the “glass ceiling” for minority women.   More importantly, the analysis also shows that efforts to improve racial and gender representation in upper management has had little effect for all racial minorities.  These facts lead into a discussion as to why Asian American men and women are the least successful minority in moving from positions of knowledge to positions of power. This talk is based on Mr. Gee’s 2018 article in the Harvard Business Review.

 

Monday, January 7, 2019 - 4:30pm

Princeton University - Frist 210

We look forward to seeing you!

'First' Friday Lunch - January 11, 2019

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons


Esther Choi is a PhD candidate in the History and Theory of Architecture and the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities at Princeton University. She received a Master of Arts in the History and Theory of Architecture from Princeton in 2014, and a Master in Design Studies from Harvard GSD in 2008. Her research interests center on the entanglements between architecture and the life sciences in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the intersections between artistic and architectural movements throughout the twentieth century. Her talk will focus on her dissertation, “The Organization of Life: Architecture, Art and the Life Sciences in Great Britain, 1929-1950,” which explores the exchanges that took place between scientists, architects, artists, and designers to reimagine Great Britain as a scientifically-ordered world after the economic crash of 1929. Spanning twenty years, four case studies organized according to evolutionary themes—natural selection, adaptation, heredity and mutation—revisit schemes that championed the belief that the human mind and behavior are thoroughly shaped by the environment.

 

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!

 


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea.

   “Assessing a New Treatment for Age-Related Macular Degeneration”

 

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in the developed world, results from a still-incurable disease process that causes dysfunction in the retina.  Although only a small area is typically affected, there is great impact on vision:  patients experience a blind spot wherever they look, leading to an inability to read, drive, recognize faces and discern objects as the disease progresses.  A promising new treatment uses gentle laser light to reshape the cornea, bending light rays away from diseased areas of the retina and onto healthy areas.  This redirection of light causes an immediate improvement in vision, and generates ongoing improvement due to neuroadaptation.  Dr. Mallen, an ophthalmologist, will discuss the disease from a clinical perspective; Prof. Berry, a neuroscientist, will explain the basic vision science underlying the treatment; and the Rev. John Frederick, who’s had the procedure in both eyes, will provide a patient’s perspective.

   “Engineering Microbes to Sustain Planet Earth”

Advances in synthetic biology, such as the development of engineered metabolisms, biosensors and genetic circuits, have revolutionized mankind’s ability to monitor and control cellular functions in the manufacture of chemicals and materials.  With these new tools, previously unsolvable problems in energy, the environment, industry and sustainability, can now be addressed. Following years of study at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Rockefeller, MIT and the Whitehead Institute, José Avalos is well-positioned to take us into the world of microbial engineering.  He will explain how it is transforming production of:  the chemicals we use; the fuels we burn; the clothes we wear; the food we eat; and the materials we employ.
