All attendees must wear masks for indoor events unless attendees can maintain a distance of six feet from each other, in which case masks may be removed. Masks may also be removed by an attendee, briefly, when they are speaking, eating, or drinking.
Depending on CDC and/or state or local health guidelines, a rise in COVID-19 cases, or other circumstances that may threaten the well-being of our attendees, CBA-CLE reserves the right to convert to a fully virtual event.

Navigating the Complexities of DE&I in the Workplace
This presentation takes participants on a journey of “deconstructing” the real meaning of equity, inclusivity, and diversity – and how these concepts show up in the workplace. We will explore the ways in which seemingly small decisions in the office can have significant and meaningful impact within an organization, and how creating an equitable workplace can result in increasing morale, empowerment, and retention of individuals from under-represented backgrounds. The keynote is designed to inspire and energize participants to leverage their skills as both leaders and colleagues in the journey to create more equitable workplaces.
Presented by Dr. Dwinita Mosby Tyler, Founder and Chief Catalyst, The Equity Project
