In Matters of Equality, We Must Be Ever Vigilant [WEBCAST ONLY] 

May 26, 2021
ON

OBA CPD PROGRAM | 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)

The recent exponential increase of anti-Asian racism underscores the need to be eternally vigilant in the fight against discrimination in all forms.  
 
As members of the legal profession, we must work together to remain awake to inequalities, discrimination and racism in our workplaces and in our communities.  For many members of our community, discrimination still exists and, in some instances, it appears in ways that you may not realize.  We must work to identify what different kinds of discrimination looks like today and how it may appear in the workplace.   
 
What tools can you put into action in your workplace to help eliminate hate and to effectively respond to discrimination in a meaningful way? Through our experienced faculty, we will gain new skills and tools that help us better:  

  • Identify what we risk growing complacent and provide tips on how we can remain attuned to the not-as-obvious inequalities.  
  • Intercept bias in your workplace, and how to best call out and challenge discrimination when you see it.
  • Focus on changes you can make to create a more inclusive and a prosperous workplace for everyone.
