This session will be very beneficial to every human resources professional to represent his or  her company and ensure compliance with the federal anti-discrimination laws.

She provides training and technical assistance to employers and employees within the district. She has given hundreds of presentations to thousands of human resources officials, managers, supervisors and attorneys on the laws EEOC enforces, best practices on avoiding unlawful harassment, discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
