About 60% of Asian American women who work in the U.S. financial sector say their race and gender have hindered their career advancements, according to a new study published on Tuesday.

Eight in 10 of the women noted that the so-called “bamboo ceiling,” which limits AAPIs due to a combination of individual, cultural and organizational factors, has hindered them from rising through the senior management ranks.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Biden administration changed its guidance on who qualifies for federal student loan forgiveness on Thursday, as seven Republican-led states filed a challenge to its student debt cancellation program. President Joe Biden said in August that the U.S. government will forgive $10,000 in student loans for millions of debt-saddled former college students, keeping a pledge he made in the 2020 campaign for the White House. The decision from the U.S. Department of Education (ED) on Thursday affects Federal Family Education loan (FFEL) borrowers - whose loans were issued and managed by private banks but guaranteed by the federal government - and does not allow them to consolidate their loans and qualify for debt relief.
