Maslon is proud to serve as a sponsor of The Forum on Workplace Inclusion (The Forum), presented by the University of St. Thomas at the Minneapolis Convention Center, on March 28-30, 2017. The three-day conference is designed specifically for organizations that believe an inclusive
workplace is vital to organizational effectiveness and bottom-line success.
For nearly 30 years, The Forum on Workplace Inclusion has brought thought leaders, practitioners, and business professionals to the Twin Cities to convene around issues of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) in the workplace. The Forum's mission is to engage people, advance ideas, and ignite change.
Maslon Partner Howard Tarkow has been a presenter and planner of The Forum since 2006. In 2017, he will co-present a session with Kevin Lindsey, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, titled "What Happens to Legal Support for Workplace D&I in the New National Administration?" The presentation will discuss the EEOC's new five-year plan of strategic enforcement priorities which targets particularly troublesome workplace discrimination practices and whether the EEOC will have the ability to continue to dedicate its modest litigation resources to those critical enforcement priorities. Howard's presentation also features an early assessment of what workplace law might look like under the Trump administration.
