Annual Meeting and CLE- Incorporating Diversity and Inclusion into Employee Benefits

Event Description

Online registration is closed. Please email to register.

Please join us for a discussion of diversity and inclusion opportunities within the Employee Benefits space. Our discussion will focus on potential diversity and inclusion opportunities with external benefits service providers and internal benefit offerings. Our goal is to help legal counsel understand ways that they can assist clients or their company with the implementation of diversity and inclusion goals within the employee benefits area.

This program will also seek to educate lawyers about the elimination of bias or prejudice in the legal profession, in the practice of law, and/or in the administration of justice by educating benefits attorneys on how benefits programs with respect to which they provide legal advice may not meet the needs of diverse employees or beneficiaries and identify some innovative features or benefits that may help to address this.

Prior to the start of the CLE, the Section Council will host a brief Annual Meeting and Elections to elect the incoming council members and officers for the 2021-2022 bar year.
