OSBA LGBT Diversity & Inclusion Conference June 15th – FREE FOR LAW STUDENTS

Please join us for the LGBTQ Diversity and Inclusion Conference (“Immigration, Employment and Education Post-Obergefell”) on Wednesday, June 15th. We also encourage everyone to stay for the reception immediately following the conference.

We are really excited about this year’s program. We have a national speaker discussing religious exemptions and nondiscrimination measures; public accommodation post-Obergefell (discussing the Kim Davis case, amongst others); EEOC Title VII; Immigration, refugee and asylum issues for the LGBTQ community; bullying; adoption/parentage/custody update; and public employers and transitioning employees. It is a wide range of topics, many in the news every day — we are hoping to reach out to the wide swath of the legal community to participate, and the topics are all on point.

As a member of the OSBA Board of Governors and a member of the planning committee for this conference, I want to personally invite you to the conference. We had a wonderful turnout of students at last year’s conference, and hope to have even more this year. Please RSVP directly to Elizabeth Krile at ekrile@ohiobar.org if interested in attending.
