Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives in the Workplace

Session 1: Recent Developments and Best Practices in Diversity and Inclusion - Review best practices in diversity and inclusion, with a specific focus on the evolving impact of the pandemic (health and racial). Session 2: Do Your Pay Equity Practices Support Your Policies of Diversity and Inclusion? - Many employers have announced great policies supporting diversity and inclusion for women and other protected classes, but have not checked to see if a pay equity analysis would show adherence to those policies. In the last few years, employers have faced increased litigation and loss of productivity due to claims that organizations still pay women and people of color less than white men for the same work—and these earnings gaps compound over time. Review how to address those issues in order to minimize risk and possibly improve morale and productivity.

    Good advice on questioning the results of tests. Not as interested in hair morphology.

    Is the use of the words "negroid" and "mongoloid" necessary? This isn't meant to be a "politically correct" issue. These three categorizations of race are no longer anthropologically accepted, and the courts have sought to distance the judiciary from categorizations based on an anacrhonistic grouping of individuals based on perceived similar physical characteristics. Indeed, attempting to categorize persons into three, or in some instances four, "races" is a social rather than scientific construct. It detracts from the course which provides some decent information and sources to reference when arguing a case but spends too much energy on the more technical aspects of hair and not enough on the practical application of the growing body of scientific concensus regarding how toxicology results could be discriminatorily applied. As an aside, skipping over the aspect of things such as the presence of heavy metals (example taken from a slide) in hair is a disservice to criminal application of this information.

    Not sure there is enough here for a while CLE.
