Greenberg Traurig LLP is a partner sponsor of the Texas Law Pipeline: Beginnings and Beyond Program. The Texas Law Office for Equity and Inclusion will welcome Professor D. Wendy Greene, a trailblazing U.S. anti-discrimination law scholar, teacher, and advocate on Saturday, February 18th at 2:15pm in the Eidman Courtroom (reception to follow). An event flyer with registration information is attached, but attendees may also RSVP here. The program has been certified for 1.0 hour of CLE credit.

Professor Greene, who is the director of the Center for Law, Policy and Social Action (CLPSA) and a professor of law at the Drexel University Kline School of Law, has devoted her professional life’s work to advancing racial, color, and gender equity in workplaces. Founder of the #FreeTheHair movement and a legal architect of the federal CROWN Act alongside parallel civil rights legislation, Professor Greene will discuss her legal scholarship and public advocacy.
