(The James F. Henry Speaker Series) LGBTQ Issues in the Workplace

March 19 @ 5:30 pm - 6:50 pm

Workplace rights of the LGBTQ community are in flux. Whether in private sector offices or public military service, it is difficult to identify and enforce—much less predict—how members of this community are protected, and how their productivity can be ensured. This panel will offer an overview of this complex state of affairs, guide dispute resolution practitioners, and propose suggestions of what might lie before us.

James F. Henry was the founder and longtime President of CPR Institute (International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution), a nonprofit program of several hundred corporations, law firms, government attorneys, and academics, whose mission is to develop alternatives to corporate, government, and international litigation. CPR was responsible for the “Corporate Pledge,” which in the mid-1980s committed more than 4,000 companies to consider alternatives to litigation in disputes with other pledge signers. James F. Henry remains one of the most effective and influential leaders in bringing Alternative Dispute Resolution into the mainstream of American legal practice.
