Fort Lauderdale associate Deedee Bitran participated as a panelist during The Stonewall Legal Alliance’s “Discrimination in the Workplace” panel at the FIU College of Law. The panel was hosted by FIU Law’s Stonewall Legal Alliance, Women’s Law Society, and the American Civil Liberties Union. The Stonewall Legal Alliance is a social and political organization designed to raise awareness of gay and lesbian issues. The panel discussed employment law, immigration law, and cutting-edge discrimination issues in the workplace. FIU Law students were given the opportunity to ask questions relating to the job interview process and learn more about discrimination in the workforce.
