Labor and employment attorney X. Lightfoot is moderating a series of diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) panels for the North Carolina Society for Human Resource Management (NCSHRM).
As NCSHRM's DEI Chair, X. organized the DEI Virtual Symposium sessions for attendees to gain valuable insights from local DEI leaders.

The second panel is happening on Wednesday, September 29. Part II of the series will feature Dr. Linda Jordon, LRJ Coaching & Business Solutions CEO, who has over 30 years of diversity and inclusion training. Dr. Jordan's training session will focus on "Developing an Inclusive Climate."
NCSHRM will conclude its DEI Symposium Series on October 6 with Nikki Pounds, CEO of HR Unequivocally. She has been a certified Civil Treatment-Diversity and Inclusion trainer for 17 years. Nikki's training session will focus on "Counteracting Unconscious Bias."
