Maximizing Diversity and Inclusion and Minimizing Reverse Discrimination Claims – Jonathan Segal, Partner at Duane Morris LLP
Attracting and promoting a diverse workforce goes beyond legal mandate. It is a business and moral imperative. Yet many organizations that are genuinely committed to diversity frequently fail to achieve their diversity goals. This is often because of systemic and/or unconscious bias without any “bad intent”. This seminar discusses how systemic and/or unconscious bias may interfere with an organization’s ability to achieve its full potential relative to diversity and inclusion. Additionally, Jonathan will also focus on the traps to avoid becoming a defendant in a “reverse discrimination” claim.
