Each of the primary coverages will be broken down in a way that will be easy to apply to the unique and specific needs of your business.

Connie Cornell, Attorney, Partner | Cornell Smith Mierl Brutocao Burton, LLP
The past year has seen many changes in the employment law arena, and not just those relating to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The unwary employer can easily trip over an unknown compliance obligation.

Five Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Strategies for EACH of Us
Lisa M. Ong, PCC, CPA, President & Founder | Wishing Out Loud LLC
Many leaders want to do more to create environments of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) but do not know where to begin. Boards, investors, clients and employees are increasingly asking organizations for more transparency and accountability around their CEO Action Pledge and/or anti-racism statements, as well as their diversity and inclusion efforts. Join Lisa Ong as she shares five personal strategies individual leaders are taking within their own teams to be the change they wish to see. No matter where your organization is on the DEIB journey, you will find practical ideas and free resources you can immediately put into action.
