ATLANTA (PRWEB) February 27, 2023
As a leader in the legal issues affecting the retail industry and in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the legal profession, global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will sponsor and present a panel at the National Retail Federation Retail Law Summit March 7 at 2:30 p.m. entitled “Shopping the New DEI: Diversity, Employment, and Immigration.”
The panel will discuss DEI from a different lens increasingly impacting the retail industry—diversity issues in employment and immigration—and how these three pillars interplay throughout the entire employment life-cycle, from recruitment and onboarding, to managing performance and conduct during employment, to separation.
The Greenberg Traurig panelists are:
- John R. Richards, Global Co-Chair of the firm’s Retail Practice—ranked Band 1 by Chambers USA Nationwide for 15 consecutive years—and a shareholder in Greenberg Traurig’s Labor & Employment Practice in which he co-chairs the firm’s DEI group and the Workplace Compliance & Counseling group.
- Courtney B. Noce, Global Co-Chair of the firm’ Immigration & Compliance Practice. She focuses her practice on U.S. business immigration, compliance and enforcement actions, as well as global immigration.
- Debra Sydnor, Greenberg Traurig’s director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
