I’m not sure if this was intentional, but the example of seeing Asian or Asian-American women excel in sport raises the key issue of representation and inclusion (or lack thereof). When so many high-profile, successful people look like a homogenous mix of the same types of people, it’s harder for anyone who identifies differently to see themselves breaking into that same level of success. Considering all the benefits of higher self-efficacy you point out, I think it’s more important than ever to strive for more diversity and opportunities for more inclusion. Great read, and definitely has some key points I’ll remember for my own future learning. Thank you!
