The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic meant working from home became the new normal for many, and it may not be as temporary as originally planned.
In a remote work environment, bias—in many forms— can hide in a bubble. A remote work environment can create feelings of isolation, and employees from historically underrepresented groups may feel less secure speaking up.
As law firms and businesses begin to reopen, employers, human resource professionals and diversity officers are challenged with developing internal D&I policies, and they’re learning that unique opportunities exist when you combine the variety of perspectives from a diverse staff.
We invite you to join in an engaging discussion that explores some of these challenges and opportunities.
- How to foster diversity and inclusion in a remote environment
- The importance of achieving better accessibility for all employees
- How feelings of isolation can develop in a WFH environment
- Becoming a stronger leader: strategies for strengthening and increasing communication with employees so that everyone feels valued and included
The panel will also highlight recent legal decisions that will help businesses develop their internal D&I policies.
Recorded in September 2020.
