Session 1

2020 Vision: Ongoing Data Privacy Developments and Dilemmas
Wednesday, December 2, 2020
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. AZ/MST

Program Description
As 2020 comes to a close, we looked back at data privacy and security developments of this year, and the dilemmas they will present in 2021. Our topics covered a broad range of updates from the international stage, including international data transfers out of the European Economic Area, as well as California updates and the status of other state legislative efforts. Data privacy and security will continue to be a core piece of everyone’s business, attracting heightened scrutiny from consumers and regulators alike.

Session 2

A Busy Intersection: The Convergence of DEI, Ethics, and Performance Management … and the Potholes of Unconscious Bias
Tuesday, December 8, 2020
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. AZ/MST

Program Description
In a fireside chat format, Of Counsel and Senior Strategic Advisor Cornell Boggs engaged with leading Diversity, Equity and Inclusion expert, author and consultant Kathleen Nalty in a discussion of timely DEI topics, many of which have come to the forefront as a result of the past summer of racial unrest and the ensuing national discussion. While not new at all of our corporations, in-house counsel and their legal departments are being tasked to do their part as these conversations continue. Moving beyond the headlines, we took a deeper dive to offer insights on legal department best practices, particularly as it relates to addressing unconscious bias. We explored how having good performance management processes for all employees can have a positive impact on DEI efforts, as well as how this topic intersects with ethics commitments, practices and obligations for those in the legal profession.

Session 3

Encountering & Incorporating Ethics in the Everyday Life of an In-House Counsel
Wednesday, December 9, 2020
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. AZ/MST

Program Description
Wearing many hats is all in a day's work for in-house counsel. In most cases, workplace scenarios you encounter will include ethical considerations. In this discussion, we helped in-house counsel anticipate where some of these thin ethical lines may show up and where they may intersect with your professional legal ethics rules and responsibilities. Not only did we use examples to illustrate these concepts, there was also time for Q&A as part of the presentation. 

Speakers:
Ben Graff, Partner, Quarles & Brady LLP
Lauren Stine, Partner, Quarles & Brady LLP
