Stepping in, Speaking Up
An inclusive culture is one where employees, including lawyers, feel that they can bring their whole selves to work, without fear of discrimination. But sometimes comments made or actions occurring in the workplace can have the unintended result of making employees – or clients – feel uncomfortable, unsafe and ultimately, excluded. This session explores how to engage in the challenging conversations needed to address microinequities and microaggressions, so that teams, including legal teams, can have dialogue that is candid, respectful and ultimately builds trust.
