The topic discussed during the conference was, "Sexual Orientation: Unique Issues in Diversity and Inclusion." Topics covered by Mr. Schwartz during the conference included background and trends in sexual orientation discrimination, accommodating employees who are transitioning from one gender to another and employees with a religious objection to other employees because of their sexual orientation. The audience included approximately 30 well-versed members of the human resource community in New York.
