In support of AAPI Heritage Month, Kantola’s partner, Littler, the largest employment law firm in the world, shares a podcast featuring Littler attorneys Danielle Herring, Emilie Hammerstein, and Alan Sims as they explore their biracial identity and how it shapes the way they practice law.
They take us on a journey of what it feels like to be forced to check just one box to say who you are, to be accepted into a cultural group (or not) based on your appearance, and to embrace the many parts of your identity.
They share their stories about having their identity challenged and how their unique biracial perspectives make them stronger as individuals and exceptional contributors to Littler’s diverse company culture.
At Kantola, we believe that when we listen to someone tell their story, we are temporarily transported away from ourselves to experience another person’s reality. We live through their words, feeling each moment, understanding the nuance of the situation and connecting to that individual at a deeply human level. And so it is with employees when they hear personal stories about harassment in the workplace.
