3.0 Missouri MCLE Hours
The Keep Moving Forward With Legal Diversity event promises to be a unique opportunity to interact and connect with local and national leaders in the legal community.
Building on the success of last year's program, Keep Moving Forward With Legal Diversity will challenge participants to have candid discussions and develop action plans to achieve diversity and inclusion goals for the benefit of their organizations.
Opening with a keynote introduction by James M. Strother, General Counsel, Wells Fargo & Company, the program will feature a panel of national experts, moderated by Jovita Foster, Partner, Armstrong Teasdale, to share their experiences, ideas and perspectives on diversity and inclusion.
Following the panel discussion, participants will have an opportunity to move to break-out rooms for smaller group discussions focusing on the development of action plans to achieve diversity and inclusion goals within their companies or practices. The conference will then conclude with short presentations from each of the break-out teams to share ideas, goals and the plans developed during those sessions.
A networking cocktail reception for all attendees will immediately follow the conference. The Keep Moving Forward with Legal Diversity program is open to attorneys, law students and human resource personnel.
