February 18: Webcast - Diversity & Inclusion in Law Practice 2016 #MCLE

The challenges to attaining diversity and inclusion in the legal and compliance professions remain formidable. At this year’s Diversity & Inclusion in Law Practice program, a renowned faculty of attorneys and diversity professionals will discuss significant legal developments that impact diversity, the continued challenges presented by unconscious bias, and individual and organizational best practices.
What You Will Learn:
  • Legal update on decisions/ recent developments impacting diversity (broadly defined to include diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, veteran status and religious beliefs)
  • Unconscious bias: what it is and how to address it in your organization
  • Best practices for advancing diversity in the legal and compliance profession
This program will be of great interest to all professionals concerned about issues of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, including partners and associates, in-house counsel, diversity directors, and professionals working in government or nonprofit organizations.
