Jamala McFadden’s Highlights from The National Diversity & Leadership Conference

The National Diversity Council’s conference last week in Dallas did not disappoint!  Keynote speakers President Barack Obama, General Colin Powell and America Ferrera were on point with lessons on leadership, diversity and inclusion and living a good life.  It was an absolute pleasure to be included in a speaker lineup that included such heavyweights. 

I partnered with Jodie Simon Glaze, Rachel Ziolkowski, Erin Eisner and Dominique Hinson to present a session about the “Current State of Employment Discrimination”.  During our session, we discussed how discrimination in the workplace has evolved over time, particularly with the rise in sex and disability-based claims; the staggering impact of technology and social media as tools of discrimination and expressing complaints; and best practices in preventing and responding to discrimination claims.
