One Year Later - PSEG Remembers the Victims of Atlanta, Georgia, Spa Shooting

One week ago (March 16), marked the one year anniversary of the shooting at a spa in Atlanta, Georgia, where eight people died, six of whom were Asian women: Soon Chung Park, Hyun Jung Grant, Suncha Kim, Yong Yue, Xiaojie Tan, Daoyou Feng, Delaina Ashley Yaun, Paul Andre Michels.

Since the 2021 spa shooting, hate crimes against the Asian community, especially women, have continued to multiply. In response, Ascend – the largest Pan-Asian business professional membership organization in North America – has developed a groundbreaking campaign, “The Other Side,” which continues to shed light on the dichotomy of being an Asian in the workplace. These stories bring to light the long-held stereotypes and microaggressions that demoralize the Asian and Pacific Islander community, which increases the vulnerability to self-doubt and lowers self-esteem – ultimately inhibiting professional growth.

In honor of the memory of those lives lost over one year ago, we invite you to watch the video and learn more about breaking bias in our workplace.
