    Expectations, and the stakes, couldn’t be higher.

    You’re not alone. 70% of organizations are tackling diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I).*

    Human resources professionals like you are at the heart of the workplace equity conversation. It’s up to you to shape the workplace of the future. Now’s the time to fuel proactive, effective change and accelerate solutions to build an equitable path forward at your organization. It’s no longer a “nice to have,” it’s an imperative. Join the WorldatWork 2021 Workplace Equity Virtual Forum to meet top thought leaders and peers to learn, network and find out what they are doing in today’s uncertain environment to drive workplace equity at their organizations.

    Topics will include:

    PAY EQUITY The nuts and bolts of establishing and improving pay equity and dismantling systemic pay inequities.

    INCLUSIVE REWARDS From compensation and benefits to development and recognition, reimagining fair, equitable and inclusive reward programs and initiatives for a diverse workforce.

    CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION Fostering an inclusive and equitable culture and ensuring accountability through action.

    Who attends?

    This event is designed for Total Rewards and HR professionals, specialists in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and compensation and benefits, as well as any professional who is interested in understanding pay equity, inclusive rewards and cultural transformation from a Total Rewards perspective.

    Presenter Overview

    Fred Pressley, Partner at Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP

    Fred chairs the firm’s Labor and Employment Department. For more than 30 years, he has successfully represented clients in employment discrimination litigation, union avoidance campaigns, collective bargaining, and wage and hour matters around the country. He has helped clients avoid employee-relations difficulties by providing proactive advice and counsel on the day-to-day issues that arise during the course of an employment relationship.

    Fred regularly represents employer interests in employment discrimination, wage and hour, and contract-based litigation claims in both state and federal court and before various administrative agencies. In the employment discrimination and wrongful discharge arena, his representation encompasses common law claims such as breach of contract and public policy violations as well as claims under employment statutes such as Title VII, the ADA, the ADEA, the FMLA, the FLSA and many other local, state and federal laws and regulations.

    In addition, Fred routinely represents employers facing union organizing campaigns and provides advice and advocacy on union avoidance, bargaining-unit composition, and representational proceedings. He also works closely with unionized employers in connection with unfair labor practice charges before the NLRB, grievance representation, collective bargaining agreement negotiations, strike readiness activities, and so-called “hybrid” 301 actions.

    Fred is a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers and is recognized in Best Lawyers®, Ohio Super Lawyers® and Chambers USA.
