Melissa Muro LaMere to Serve on Anti-Racism Panel at the 2021 Labor & Employment Law Institute

November 18, 2021

Melissa Muro LaMere, a partner in Maslon's Litigation and Labor & Employment Groups, will participate on a virtual panel Nov. 18, 2021, during the 2021 Labor & Employment Law Institute, an annual conference for experienced labor and employment attorneys. In the session, titled "Strategies for Creating an Anti-Racist Workplace," Melissa and her fellow panelists will discuss how to hold authentic conversations about systemic racism at work, how employers can create a safe space for people of color and LGBTQ employees, and how to address defensiveness of white employees around discussions of race, equity, and privilege. They'll also share anti-racist actions employers can take to create equality in the workplace.

The conference is presented by Minnesota CLE and the Minnesota State Bar Association's Labor & Employment Law Section. For more information or to register, go to: 2021 Labor & Employment Law Institute.
