2021 Employment Law Annual Update Series: Part Four

April 15, 2021 at 9:30am10:30am
Virtual Series

Join us for the fourth part of our 2021 Employment Law Annual Update! The virtual series will continue through the year on the third Thursday of each month.

This year, we are taking every precaution to make sure our clients and our community stay safe during the pandemic and, as a result, we are making our usual one-day conference into a virtual series spread out over 2021. Participants will be provided with the information they need to navigate the ever-changing labor and employment landscape, as well as CLE and SHRM credits to meet any licensing requirements that participants may have.

Part 4: Uncovering Employee Covering: Addressing Authenticity in Your DEI Program

Authenticity is key to having an inclusive work environment. But studies show that upwards of 60% of your workforce is likely covering some aspect of themselves. What is covering? Coined in 1963 by Erving Goffman, the use of the term covering is increasingly used today for when individuals manage or downplay their differences and aspects of their true identity in order to “fit in.” Examples of covering can include everything from hiding one’s sexual orientation or group affiliations to altering their appearance and grooming habits. During this session, Verrill attorneys Tawny Alvarez and Liz Johnston will uncover what covering in the workplace looks like and how to address it in order to help to craft and implement a more successful DEI plan while simultaneously remaining within the confines of the law.

Webinars are 60 minutes each and provide 1 Maine CLE and 1 SHRM credits.
