As part of Morgan Lewis's ongoing conversations on anti-racism and allyship, our firm is hosting a discussion on the societal and workplace impacts of George Floyd's death, a year after his tragic murder at the hands of a police officer. Beyond the political and corporate expressions of sympathy and united calls for justice, our featured subject matter experts will discuss how social, political, educational, and economic outcomes have tangibly changed for Black Americans—if at all—and provide thoughts on what true progress looks like.

Panelists include:

Lisa M. Coleman, Ph.D
SVP, Global Inclusion and Strategic Innovation, New York University

John E. Harmon, Sr., IOM
Founder, President, and CEO, African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey
