She also will review the variety of diversity programs and initiatives under way at major global corporations and organizations and the implications of such programs.

Responding with the insights and perspectives of veteran lawyers will be Michael Delikat, Esq., Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliff, LLP, and Debra Raskin, Esq., Vladeck, Waldman, Elias & Engelhard, PC, who counsel management and plaintiff/union clients, respectively, on the complicated legal issues and obstacles that companies, unions, and individuals face in achieving the critical goal of a more diverse workplace.
