Diversity Week 2017Shipman & Goodwin LogoMost people underestimate their ability to make positive change in their workplaces or organizations, especially when those changes involve addressing inequity or bias. Speaking out always requires courage, but developing a strategy and doing your homework are the real keys to success. Drawing on recent work in motivational psychology, behavioral economics, and decades of experience, Dean Alvarez will share inspiring stories, cautionary tales, and practical advice on claiming your power for good. Lunch will be served. Co-sponsored by the Latino Law Students Association (LLSA) and the Labor & Employment Law Society.

Introductory Remarks by Alfredo G. Fernandez, Associate, Shipman & Goodwin LLP
