Companies across all industries are facing increasing pressure from various stakeholders within and outside the company to disclose workforce demographics, staff projects with diverse employees, and take other affirmative measures to improve workforce diversity. Sometimes demands for transparency are in tension with the company’s ability and desire to avoid discrimination claims. In addition, more aggressive measures to improve workforce diversity are already resulting in government investigations and claims of “reverse” discrimination.
Please join Esther Lander and Richard Rabin from Akin Gump’s Labor and Employment practice for a CLE to discuss practical ways to successfully navigate the balance between having a robust and effective diversity and inclusion program while mitigating the risk of exposure to legal claims.
