Parker Poe Webinar

    Speaking Engagements
  • June 25, 2020

Our communities are in upheaval from the impact of the pandemic as well as the outcry regarding police brutality against African Americans and widespread protesting related to racial injustice and systemic racism. This dynamic creates added challenges for employers, who must bring together people with different perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds to achieve their organization’s business goals.

In a Parker Poe webinar, Shalanna Pirtle and Stacy Wood provided practical insights to help employers navigate these challenges. They addressed: 

  • Existing laws and policies, as well as what has changed.
  • The reactive and proactive roles of human resources in the new environment.
  • The role of company leadership.
