ORC Worldwide’s WON Meeting hosted by Mattel in El Segundo, CA was an opportunity for rich dialogue and a collaborative networking experience for the 26 organizations in attendance. Attendees covered a variety of sectors including financial, automotive, manufacturing, media, health care and pharmaceutical, technology, government and non-profit.
In keeping with our long history of helping advance the art and practice of human relations, and in particular our commitment to developing thinking and practice in equality and diversity, ORC were delighted to sponsor two thought provoking seminars held in London in late 2009 in conjunction with the Equality and Diversity Forum (EDF). The focus of the seminars which attracted policy makers, academics, employers etc was the issues arising from the impact of the recession and the implications for fairness, equality and social justice.
Members of the Global Workplace Compliance Network (GWCN) and other U.S.-based in-house attorneys and workplace compliance professionals will hear local experts discuss the emerging trends organisations face as employers and buyers in a rapidly growing Asia. The 90-minute webinar is scheduled for January 20, 2010 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
