Pierce Atwood Attorneys, Tom Dunn and Katie Kohm, plan to attend a first-ever summit focused on understanding the business implications of inclusion, diversity, and professionalism across the construction industry. The meeting is a perfect opportunity for in-house counsel, risk managers, compliance managers, diversity officers, and other leaders of companies involved in the construction industry to engage in this important discussion. The American Bar Association Forum on Construction Law is putting on the meeting in Philadelphia later this month on October 23-25th. As can be seen in the program brochure, the topics discussed are relevant to legal and business professionals involved in the construction community. In addition to an assessment of diversity and inclusion, topics include how those issues relate to risk management, pay equity, immigration, DBE programs, negotiations/ADR, leadership, and rules of ethics. The program will benefit any lawyer advising companies, any labor/employment lawyer, and any in-house counsel for construction, design, insurance.
