Understanding Legal Risks While Staying True to Your DEI Strategy

Thursday, April 04, 2024
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Right now, the viability of and progress made through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are being challenged in our courtrooms, affecting our education system and workplaces. Although legal risks will always exist, the intrinsic value of the DEI work our business community has been long dedicated to still remains true.

Join us at this virtual forum to better understand the legal risks within the shifting DEI landscape, and its importance not only to a company’s overall business strategy but also to the middle managers whose daily decisions affect operations and culture. Hear from panelists about the relevant legislative issues DEI leaders currently face and pinpoint the common pitfalls experienced when creating, implementing, and maintaining their DEI strategy. Learn how to develop legally compliant DEI strategies with the right partnerships that remain centered around making the workplace inclusive of and equitable for all people.
