On November 12, 2021, the CMBG3 team was able to participate in an interactive session titled “Examining Privilege” with Jermaine Moore, founder of the Mars Hill Group. Mr. Moore has spent two decades working with companies of all sizes, including Fortune 500 companies, on diversity initiatives. During the session, Mr. Moore addressed the following topics:
“For many, the word “privilege” conjures up emotion. A privilege is simply a right or benefit enjoyed by a person who is a member of a particular group or identity. The term “white privilege” has been popularized, but what does it really mean? Together we’ll explore what this term means and why it can sting, unpack the “invisible knapsack” for a peak into an unprivileged worldview, expand the concept of privilege beyond race, learn how each of us can use our privilege for good.”
CMBG3 is thrilled to have a partnership with Mr. Moore, and is committed to having Mr. Moore have several dialogues with our team on various diversity, equity and inclusion topics. Our next session with Mr. Moore will focus on the topic of “Managing Stress and Beating Burnout.”
CMBG3 is proud to be a majority women-owned law firm and we are sincerely committed to diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives not only in our firm, but in the legal community and society as a whole. For more about our D.E.I. initiatives, please visit us.
