Leading Through Uncertainty: Prioritizing DEI Through Times of Transition

We do not have a crystal ball but for a moment, let’s pretend we do. What does the workplace look like? Will we go back to brick and mortar or continue to work remotely? What will this mean for DEI initiatives? While the virus has pushed us out of our comfort zones, it has also presented a unique opportunity to look at our options and evolve as professionals and as humans.

This panel will explore:

  • Finding new ways of adapting to the challenges ahead
  • Prioritizing DEI initiatives in a hybrid workplace
  • The GC’s responsibility as a leader in the New Normal


  • Lauren Parris Watts, Partner, Seyfarth Shaw
