NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (April 19, 2017) – The law firm of Neubert, Pepe & Monteith, P.C. recently held mandatory diversity and sensitivity training for all firm employees. The training was conducted by the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) A World of Difference® Institute.

The A World of Difference Institute’s programs and resources are designed to help participants: recognize bias and the harm it inflicts on individuals and society; build understanding of the value and benefits of diversity; improve intergroup relations; and confront racism, anti-Semitism and all other forms of bigotry.
ADL’s A World of Difference Institute trainers Michelle Pincince and Ellen Boynton engaged Neubert, Pepe & Monteith employees at each of the firm’s two training sessions with thoughtful and provoking questions, discussions, and exercises.
