On May 3, Davis Malm shareholders Tamsin Kaplan and Larry Casey were featured speakers at the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) Eastern Region Conference.

Tamsin moderated the panel, “Diversity, Unconscious Bias and Employer Liability,” and Larry served as a panelist along with Gail Dines, Chair and Professor of American Studies, Wheelock College, and Keith Maddox, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Tufts University. This session explored how unconscious and unexamined biases can impact a university or college campus, and examined how those biases may impede an institution’s ability to achieve diversity and equality on campus and increase institutional and individual legal risk. Attendees learned how to implement policies and practices to ensure biases aren’t impeding strides toward diversity and inclusivity in faculty and staff.
