Perrin Conferences is proud to announce its first annual Diversity & Inclusion Conference to be held on November 3, 2016 at The Westin Philadelphia, PA. Perrin Conferences, along with Co-Chairs Elizabeth Fitch, Esq., Founding Partner of Righi Fitch Law Group; and Deborah Saunders, Director, Claims, Global Risk Management at Comcast NBCUniversal, is assembling an agenda designed to encourage discussions and an exchange of ideas to promote effective diversity and inclusion strategies across the legal industry.

Fostering a diverse and inclusive professional environment is of the utmost importance when it comes time to evaluate an organization’s corporate culture and overall success.

This neutral forum will provide a day of presentations and interactive sessions covering topics such as: Insights on Diversity in the Legal Community; Understanding the Value of Emotional Intelligence; Developing Diverse and Inclusive Leadership; The In-House Counsel and Insurance Perspectives on Effective Internal Programs to Promote Diversity & Inclusion as well as How to Better Serve Your Clients; Turning Words into Action; and others. Attendees should leave the conference feeling inspired to take steps to improve diversity and inclusion initiatives and programs within their own companies, and have a concrete list of ideas regarding how to do so.
