Diversity & Inclusion for the 21st Century
iROC - Investigating Research on Campus
Please be with us September 19th when Michael Fox, School of Business, will present Diversity & Inclusion for the 21st Century.
We live in a multi-cultural world. Respect for others, their beliefs and their viewpoints is paramount in a well-functioning society. To that end, many laws exist to balance the field, and reinforce the societal judgment that no one should face discrimination or harassment because of their race, gender, disability, age, marital status, or other specific protected characteristics. In fact, New York State recently passed legislation expanding a wide range of protections, which will take effect in 2019-2020. This talk will review and analyze some of the federal and New York State laws in this growing and important field, focusing particularly on the business world.

He received his Doctor of Law degree from Columbia University School of Law, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar; and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in economics, Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude, from Bucknell University.
