Stinson Leonard Street Hosts Day of Understanding to Address Bias and Advance Diversity and Inclusion in the Legal Community
KANSAS CITY, MO, DECEMBER 7, 2018 – Stinson Leonard Street LLP joins more than 150 organizations for the “Day of Understanding” hosted by CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion ™ to address bias and increase understanding in the workplace and beyond. Stinson will engage its employees in an open conversation about key issues surrounding race, gender and sexuality in order to drive greater understanding and appreciation of differences.
As part of the day, Stinson will host a firm wide discussion on cultural competence and building an inclusive community. This session joins the ongoing training and education we host as a firm year-round.
The Day of Understanding directly ties back to the coalition’s foundational commitments to make workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion as well as implement and expand unconscious bias education.
To better engage all employees and citizens everywhere, the coalition also launched a unique opportunity through the “I Act On” pledge, a personal pledge that any individual can take to commit to tackling bias and cultivating more inclusive behaviors in their everyday lives. All employees participating in the “Day of Understanding”, as well as the general public, have the chance to take the pledge by visiting ceoaction.com/pledge.
