Our keynote speaker will be Sunila Thomas George, Chairwoman and Commissioner, Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD). With over 20 years of experience at the MCAD, Chairwoman George will share her insight into the agency’s inner workings and enforcement priorities — particularly against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement.
