Gender Equity: Practical Strategies – An #HRTechConf Interview with Kate Bischoff and Heather Bussing

Aug 26, 2019 1:54:30 PM / by Mary Kaylor posted in Women in HR Tech Summit, gender equity

0 Comments

Kate Bischoff is an overly enthusiastic, sarcastic and opinionated management-side employment attorney and SHRM-SCP-certified HR pro. She works closely with management and HR folk to improve organizations and make it easier to recruit and retain talent through having easy-to-understand policies, easy-to-use technology, and easy-to-explain compliance initiatives. Kate has been recognized by The New York Times, CNN.com, National Public Radio, and other journalistic sources as a leading authority on harassment and employment law. Prior to founding tHRive Law & Consulting, Ms. Bischoff served as a Human Resources Officer for the United States Department of State at the U.S. Embassy Lusaka, Zambia and for the U.S. Consulate General Jerusalem. Kate is also an Adjunct Professor at Mitchell Hamline, serving as faculty for the School of Law’s HR Compliance Certificate Program.

Heather Bussing has practiced employment law for 30 years and regularly writes for the HR Examiner on the intersection of people, technology, and work. She also teaches Social Media and Internet Law with John Sumser.

Kate and Heather will present the session Gender Equity: Practical Strategies at the upcoming HR Technology Conference. The session will examine the wide range of factors that contribute to sexual harassment claims and gender equity issues. From the proverbial “bro culture” to blatant pay inequity and more subtle forms of discrimination, two respected employment attorneys will share practical tips on how to address gender equality in your workplace. Topics such as maternity benefits, leadership skills and promotional opportunities, and how to lift others as you climb the corporate ladder will be explored.

With so many excellent sessions at HR Tech, it will be difficult to decide which to attend – and as is usually the case -- many of your top picks will occur at the same time.

I asked Heather and Kate a few questions to give attendees a better understanding of the information there session will deliver.
