The Pamplin College of Business is co-sponsoring a speaker series on race, gender, and other concepts related to equality, fairness, and the role of organizations in society.

We invite you to join us on Monday, November 16, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. ET for the second speaker, Professor Alex Reed, of the University of Georgia, for his talk, "The Promise and Peril of LGBTQ Rights in the Wake of Bostock v. Clayton County.” Dean Robert Sumichrast will provide an introduction. 

The Supreme Court decision of Bostock v. Clayton County is a landmark ruling that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the workplace. Professor Reed will review the Bostock case, explore its implications, and provide recommendations for business leaders to promote an LGBTQ-friendly workplace for the future.

The other co-sponsors are University of Connecticut School of Business, the Department of Business Law and Ethics at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business, and Academy of Legal Studies in Business.
