Experiences of discrimination in terms of race and gender were examined through a multi-method qualitative study. 94 participants reported experiences of discrimination for the online Consensual Qualitative Research- Modified (CQR-M) method, while 13 women participated in focus group interviews which were analyzed using thematic content analysis. Participants reported experiences occurring in a variety of personal and professional contexts. Results revealed not only experiences of discrimination that are shared between Asian American women and Asian American men, but also revealed information about the nature of discrimination which is unique to the intersectional identity of Asian American women as women of color. Research and clinical implications as well as directions for future research are presented.
