Diversity & Inclusion for the 21st Century

iROC - Investigating Research on CampusPortrait of: Michael Fox

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.

Dr. Michael L. Fox, J.D. is the Assistant Professor of Business Law and Pre-Law Advisor. 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. He has practiced as an attorney with a Wall Street law firm, been a partner and litigation managing attorney with one prominent Hudson Valley law firm, and special counsel with another. He has served as Deputy Corporation Counsel for the City of Port Jervis. Martindale-Hubbell has rated him "AV", which is the highest rating for professional ability and ethics, achieved by no more than 10% of those in the profession. 

Diversity & Inclusion for the 21st Century will take place in Kaplan Library Room 218 in the Dominican Center. This event has been approved FYE credit as College Connection. All are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
