Organizations promoting diversity and inclusion need support if they are going to make progress. Such support includes critically examining 21st century diversity practices that end up perpetuating unfairness and maintaining the status quo—even when intended to do just the opposite. What are those actions and practices? How is it possible that, for instance, a woman or a person of color can be hurt by a company when a manager assigns them to a diversity committee? Learn about such unsuccessful practices, as well as how firms can rectify these practices in the name of fairness and social justice.
The most talked about generation in a long time is bringing a changed mindset to the practice, and that’s good. And there’s a big chance that the changed way of approaching the practice is going to morph some key ethics concepts. In this program, Stuart Teicher, “the CLE Performer” will provide a warning to all— the changers and the changees. He’ll focus on the impact of Rule 1.4 Communication, 5.1 Supervision, and 2.1 Advisor.
This session is designed to increase understanding of the importance of inclusion within the law firm setting; to help increase appreciation for why diversity of employees in the law firm setting is ideal; and to provide practical tips, including how to effectively utilize affirmative considerations, for increasing diversity in the workplace.
During these unprecedented times, employers must remain purposeful in creating a sense of community, belonging, and engagement in the workplace—whether physical or virtual. Learn practical and legally-compliant strategies for diversity, inclusion, and allyship that can improve productivity, professional development, retention, and overall success and explore emerging terminology and ways to overcome obstacles to diversity and inclusion.
