February 16: Legal scholar discusses workplace environment for people with disabilities: before, during, and after COVID-19
February 4, 2021
The Pamplin College of Business is co-sponsoring Equity Now, a speaker series on race, gender, and the role of law and policy in facilitating equality, fairness, and inclusion in organizations.
We invite you to join us on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 6 p.m. ET, for our next speaker, Professor Marianne DelPo Kulow, of Bentley University, for her talk, ““The Legal Environment for Workers with Disabilities: Before, During, and After COVID-19.”
COVID-19 has had a profound effect on the workplace, perhaps most so for those with disabilities. This talk will highlight some of the most important opportunities, challenges, and legal issues facing workers with disabilities, with particular emphasis on how a post-COVID environment may radically alter how people with disabilities interact with and succeed in organizations.
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.
