Welcome to Asian Staff Forum

ASF is on Slack!

Asian Staff Forum is on Stanford University Slack! If you are currently using Slack as part of your work environment, or would like the opportunity to connect with people across campus, consider downloading Slack to your computer and joining the ASF workspace!

For more information on how to download Slack, register your account, and support, please visit the UIT Website for information on the Stanford Slack Grid.

To join the ASF space, you can either join online here or search for "Asian Staff Forum" in the "Find More Workspaces" in the Stanford workspaces. Submit a request to join, and we will approve it.

We currently have channels promoting ASF Events, Job Postings, and General. General is your space to connect, post questions, post events targeted to the Asian American community you would like to publicize, and more.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Cindy Cho.

We wanted to reach out to you and check in with you during this difficult time, as we watch the daily updates about not only about COVID-19, but also about the fight against systemic racism and police brutality, as people march and demonstrate to make sure their voices are heard. We wanted to pass along the resources that may be helpful to you around allyship, reactions from the Asian American community, actions you can take from wherever you are right now, and also encourage you to sign up for the Brave Spaces conversations being held this week, next week, and beyond (we are seeing amazing demand so far, so we will most likely plan more sessions) to learn more and have conversations with your colleagues about what we as an institution can do to support our community.
