Undercover Employees: How To Foster Inclusion When Workplace Covering Abounds with Ashley Kirkwood



How can you create an inclusive workplace when your employees hide key aspects of their identity at work? One Harvard Business Review article reported that as many as 61% of all employees participate in some form of covering. Covering involves hiding or downplaying some aspect of one’s identity for fear of drawing unwanted attention or in an attempt to make others more comfortable. During this interactive virtual presentation Ashley Kirkwood, Esq. of Mobile General Counsel will explain covering and provide some tangible tools you can use to uncover cultural landmines in your company that foster exclusion versus true inclusion. 


About the Presenter, Ashley Kirkwood:

After graduating from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law with honors, Ashley started her career at one of the largest law firms in the world, Kirkland & Ellis LLP. While there, she tried cases on behalf of large insurance companies. She also landed in the pages of the American Lawyer after a hard-won victory in a federal civil rights jury trial! Soon after that trial, Ashley left Kirkland to work at another large law firm where she represented employers in employment discrimination and sexual harassment cases. It was there that Ashley decided that she wanted to represent emerging businesses in order to help them bulletproof their businesses!

Ashley makes her expertise accessible by providing legal products for the busy entrepreneur! She frequently provides legal trainings open to all via her Facebook and Instagram accounts. You might catch Ashley serving as an on-air legal correspondent for a local Chicago television network or speaking at a college or corporation! 

Ashley is committed not just to entrepreneurs, but also to students. She and her husband, Chris, run a nonprofit, The Kirkwood Foundation, where they teach students on Chicago’s West Side about high paying legal, medical and STEM careers.
