Is workplace bias simply a legal issue or is it holding your company back?  The US has a litany of laws that protect workers, and yet many CEOs are unaware of how easy it is to violate the law and get sued or investigated by the government.  At the same time, unconscious bias at all levels of the organization, can create a toxic culture that lowers productively and increases turnover.

How can you navigate the legal complexity and also build a strong culture and an inclusive workplace?

Join Paula Sumberg on September 15th, for an engaging presentation on “Building a Strong Culture by Understanding Workplace Bias and the Law”.  Paula is an attorney with deep experience on the legal and cultural factors that create a strong workplace culture.

Paula is now the Assistant General Counsel for a Fortune 500 Company, Beacon Building Products which operates in every state and Canada.
