Promoting Workplace Diversity Without Inadvertently Violating Employment Laws
July 7, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT
In recent weeks, protests across the world have increased awareness and spurred discussions about systemic racism in all aspects of society, including in the workplace. While many businesses have issued public statements condemning racism and lauding diversity and inclusion, many continue to struggle with finding practical solutions to champion workplace diversity while addressing concerns about discrimination. Similarly, many employers are struggling with how to respond to employees who express myriad opinions on these issues, whether in the workplace or over social media.
In this webinar, HSE attorneys Ben Mudrick and Iskra Bonnano will provide practical advice and walk through multiple real-world scenarios to help participants better understand how they can promote diversity and address employee concerns while still maintaining compliance with applicable employment laws.
To make sure we are focused on your challenges, we encourage attendees to send us questions in advance. Please see the registration form to submit your questions.
