    The nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd have led many business leaders to reconsider their organizations' approach to diversity and inclusion.

    Too often, D&I programs have been primarily educational seminars with little practical effect on even well-intentioned leaders' business practices.

    Might this lack of impact be due to those programs' lack of personal, empathetic conversations between those of differing backgrounds?

    In this one-hour discussion, three HR leaders will share their experiences as people of color, both in society at large and in the workplace, with a white HR professional seeking to understand.

    They will share insight from their unique perspectives into:

    *         Disparate impact,

    *         Systemic racism,

    *         The prospect of "color-blind workplaces,"

    *         The challenges of creating a meritocratic environment,

    *         Corporate pronouncements of solidarity with social movements and their employees of color, and

    *         Where business leaders should focus their energy and attention to maximize continued progress.

    Tommy Simmons will discuss the many ways that the Covid-19 pandemic has altered the landscape of unemployment insurance (UI) in Texas. He will address regular and extended UI benefits, shared work plans, mass claims, and how employers may be protected in whole or in part against financial liability for such benefits. The talk will also cover the three new kinds of unemployment benefits created under the CARES Act and how eligibility is determined. Special issues such as work refusals and fraud will be highlighted. Finally, he will cover how the disaster-related benefits may affect employers’ state unemployment tax rates for 2021 and the years beyond.
