The California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA) and the Foundation for Advocacy Inclusion & Resources (FAIR) are pleased to present this year's Diversity Leadership Summit. This annual Summit is geared towards diverse law students and attorneys in the employment space who want to develop their leadership skills, increase diversity in the profession, and make a difference through their work. The event is open to and includes both plaintiff and defense bar attorneys, government and public interest attorneys, and law students.
We are focusing this year’s conference on allyship and supporting minority voices. Topics covered will include how to be a good ally, common patterns in confronting discrimination or harassment in the workplace, and how to apply concepts of allyship to our own lives and our practices representing workers and organizations attempting to foster diversity.
This year's keynote speaker is Evelyn Rangel Medina, Managing Director of United for Respect (http://www.ourrespect.org).
Our Allyship featured panelists are: Robert White, Executive Director of California Minority Counsel Program; Lori Rifkin, Partner at Hadsell, Stormer and Renick; and Rachel Langston, Senior Staff Attorney at Legal Aid at Work.
Rory Gerberg, a consultant at ReadySet (https://www.thereadyset.co) will conduct a workshop on rethinking sexual harassment prevention in a #MeToo world.
The Summit is free of charge and includes breakfast refreshments, a networking lunch, MCLE credit (pending), and written materials.
