Janet Hendrick, a Shareholder in Phillips Murrah’s Dallas office, will present at the 6th Annual Texas Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Conference on June 16, 2021. The conference will run from June 15-17 and is sponsored by Toyota, Texas Capital Bank, Southwest Airlines, Parkland Hospital, and other partners.
Hendrick will discuss “The Future of DEI Efforts: What We’ve Learned and How Companies Can Do Better,” with the goal of informing attendees on the state of DEI efforts, including what the events of 2020 have taught us and how companies can make their DEI efforts more effective.
“2020 brought many changes in the workplace, including an increase in DEI initiatives,” Hendrick said. “While many companies have ramped up their efforts, studies show DEI initiatives are still falling short of accomplishing necessary change in the business world. In this session, we will discuss the impact of 2020 events on DEI efforts, advances in DEI, and what’s ahead for DEI in the workplace.”
Conference attendees will network with other business professionals from around the state, hear remarks from national speakers about the importance of diversity in the workplace, and attend breakout sessions designed to help businesses to grow and thrive.
Janet Hendrick is an experienced employment lawyer who frequently speaks on matters relating to diversity and inclusion. She is also a member of the North Texas LGBT Chamber of Commerce’s Governing Committee.
