Diversity, Inclusion, and Bias in Corporate Governance: Increasing Financial Impact for Companies
Mitigating Risk of Shareholder Activism and Consumer Boycotts
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will present what is fast becoming required guidance on the pervasive imperative of diversity, inclusion, and bias in corporate governance. Investors and laws are now forcing the issue on companies that have lagged. Many lawyers are mandated to become familiar with the subject, and even if not required, should have a full understanding of it to guide clients.
- Understanding of topic
- Discrimination distinguished
- Legal forces at work
- Other forces at work
- Shareholder activism (and legal response)
- Consumer issues
- The lawyer's role
This panel will address these and other vital questions, including:
- Where do anti-discrimination laws and diversity/inclusion/anti-bias policies overlap?
- What is the corporate counsel's role in facilitating clients who seek to integrate these goals into the workplace?
- Is the California law a harbinger for other states adopting such laws?
- Which states require its attorneys to earn CLE credits on diversity, inclusion, and anti-bias?
