Fulbright Diversity Weekend with Latham & Watkins

We'd like to invite you to the "Fulbright Diversity Weekend" on January 13-14, 2017 in Frankfurt.

During the event, we will focus on the subject of diversity in companies and society. You will have the unique chance to attend inspiring speeches from industry leaders, participate in captivating discussions and to meet other Fulbrighters. With increasing globalization, the right diversity management is the key to global success. We are looking forward to your ideas and contributions.

We will start the program with an enriching get-together on Friday night. Our program on Saturday is divided into three parts, including inspiring speeches and an expert podium discussion. You can look forward to the speech of Greg Walker, a lawyer from our partner law firm Latham & Watkins, who will focus on Affirmative Action in the US. Furthermore, Aliyeh Yegane is a diversity expert and will conduct a speech on religious diversity. On the basis of this diverse program, we are looking forward to an enriching and inspiring weekend.
