LGBTQ Equality in YOUR Workplace

Join us for an in-depth analysis and discussion of current law and practice in the property management sphere. Our facilitators will present a thought-provoking case study of work place discrimination from their personal experiences as attorneys. John Raftery and Billy Cannon (principals with the law firm of Offit Kurman) will focus the discussion on implicit discrimination in some work places and share their three strategies to help ensure equal treatment of LGBTQ individuals. John and Billy will answer questions from the audience on difficult employment issues in combating the deeply rooted discrimination faced by the LGBTQ community.


Billy Cannon is Chair of Offit Kurman's Landlord Representation Practice Group. He represents property owners and property management companies in the District of Columbia and Maryland in state and federal court litigation, mediations, and administrative agency hearings and also assists with leasing, transactions and Fair Housing Act compliance. 




John Raftery is a member of the firm's Management Committee and a Regional Practice Group Director—a role which oversees many of Offit Kurman’s legal service teams. Leveraging years of experience in real estate litigation, fair housing defense and business law, John serves as a trusted advisor to closely held businesses and organizations and local and regional management companies.  


Cost: $45.00
