A distinctive part of an industry partnership with GATE is to engage with university researchers on the cutting-edge topics of the day. In our second Industry Partner Workshop, we welcomed a keynote by Jamillah Bowman Williams (Associate Professor of Law, Georgetown Law) on “Breaking Down Bias” and discussed several other topics, including:
The business case vs. the legal case for diversity
The promotion gap
Flexible work policies
Our researchers guided participants through a series of talks on these issues and presented their latest findings.
The clips below feature our keynote speaker, Associate Professor Jamillah Bowman Williams from Georgetown University Law Center. In the first clip, she explains the business, legal, and moral case for diversity and inclusion, and in the second clip, she discusses why the legal case may be more effective.
