On March 20,2019, in Chicago, Ms. Hart joined an august roster of institutional investors, entrepreneurs and asset managers and others to discuss the organizational and investment imperative of diversity. The research on investment and performance results were the cornerstone of the discussion. Measurement of performance from diverse organizations and leadership was juxtaposed with non diverse organizations reflecting clear performance enhancements. Ms. Hart’s remarks were targeted to advancing and maintaining diverse talent in leadership. A focus on environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) objectives and leadership on diversity from Europe were part of the day long discussion.
Ms. Hart’s participation in this and other discussions on this important subject are part of Lowey Dannenberg P.C.’s commitment to its role in creating fairness and equality in the workplace and Lowey’s role in the community.
