Greenberg Traurig's Co-President Ernest Greer and Shareholder & Chief Diversity Officer Nikki Lewis Simon will participating on a webinar, Leading in a Pandemic: How Visionary Leaders Create Opportunities for Business, Diversity & Inclusion. The event will be hosted by the Association for Corporate Counsel Foundation on Thursday, May 7 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
Learn how proactive business leaders in law firms, corporate legal departments or beyond are seizing the moment in the midst of a pandemic to ensure that diversity, inclusion, and belonging – and ultimately positive business – survive and thrive as important, ongoing strategic imperatives. Whether it is identifying who serves on the pandemic task force, taping talent for an inter-departmental effort focused on re-shaping the business post-pandemic or identifying future leaders based on how they have risen to the occasion during a crisis, dynamic leaders are vocally advocating on behalf of highly-capable diverse talent for these kinds of career-expanding opportunities, while also ensuring that diverse business leaders are not inadvertently marginalized or caught in the pandemic watershed. Seasoned leaders will share some important lessons learned and best practices to safeguard the hard-earned, post-recession gains in diversity and inclusion, and why now is the best time to double-down on inclusion.
Additional panelists include:
• Monica Johnson, General Counsel, Darigold
• Anthony Sharrett, Executive Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, Meta Financial Group, Inc.
• Benjamin Wilson, Diverse Partners Network and Managing Partner, Beveridge & Diamond
