Rocky Mountain Legal Diversity Summit 2007


Feature: Creating an Inclusive Workplace — a best practices panel



 Learn from legal employers who have "been there, done that." Panelists will discuss programs implemented within their organizations that have worked and failed, and the lessons learned. Leave with an understanding of the value of a diversity professional within an organization. You will come away from this session with valuable tools for implementing your own diversity program in your organization.
