Pull up a comfortable chair, your favorite drink and join us via Zoom. We are excited to welcome Jody Newman, Esq., an employment lawyer with more than 35 years’ experience.

She will address “The Outsized Role of Leadership in Building Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Workplaces”.

Discussion Points:

  • Recent social movements have shined a spotlight on the suppression of women and persons of color in society and in our businesses and workplaces with much commentary on the role of leadership
  • Why existing laws, policies and practices of the last 50 years have not solved the problem of discriminatory workplaces
  • Why leadership plays an outside role in company culture
  • How to build an equitable and inclusive workplace
  • Mistakes to avoid
