BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — As we all know, COVID-19 has had a profound effect on the workplace. Many working from home have faced the additional challenges of caring for children and other family members and other concerns normally outside the job environment.
But what about for those with disabilities?
Marianne DelPo Kulow, the Gregory H Adamian Professor of Law and business law department chair at Bentley University, will be the next presenter in Equity Now, an online speaker series on race, gender, and how law and policy can facilitate equality, fairness and inclusion in organizations.
She will lead a discussion on the topic, “The Legal Environment for Workers with Disabilities: Before During and After COVID-19.” Her talk will begin at 6 p.m. (Eastern) on Tuesday Feb. 16.
Her talk will highlight some of the most important opportunities, challenges and legal issues facing workers with disabilities, with particular emphasis on how a post-COVID environment may radically alter how people with disabilities interact with and succeed in organizations.
The Indiana University Kelley School of Business is co-sponsoring the Equity Now series along with the business schools at the University of Connecticut and Virginia Tech University and the Academy of Legal Studies in Business. Registration is free and open to the public.
Kulow began her legal career as a litigation attorney in Boston, first with Bingham McCutchen (then Bingham Dana & Gould) and then with Peabody & Arnold. She defended large and small companies against a variety of claims before becoming a law professor at Bentley in 1993.
From 2005-2011, Kulow served as director of Bentley’s Women’s Leadership Institute, later subsumed into Bentley’s Center for Women in Business. She has published on various aspects of discrimination law and her current research focuses on critiquing workplace and education legislation and suggesting legislative reforms to better achieve workplace and educational equity.
