April 08, 2021
In reaction to recent protests and social unrest across the country related to the treatment of Blacks and other ethnic and racial minority groups, we have seen businesses put a strong focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. While some businesses have been working on these issues for years, others have only recently created programs looking at these issues. On this episode, labor and employment partner Marian Zapata-Rossa discusses the advantages of a diverse workforce, the potential legal pitfalls of a poorly executed DEI program, and the changing landscape of diversity, equity and inclusion in the 2021 workplace
