Navigating Return to Office — What the Heck?!


Date: October 19, 2022

Time: 5:30PM - 8:30PM (PST)

Location: Shutters on the Beach

We’d love for you to join us at Shutters on the Beach for an engaging discussion on navigating return to office.

We have a diverse group of accomplished women to help us make sense of this challenging issue, which includes Camilla Eng, General Counsel of LaserAway, Nicole Hancock Husband, Vice President, People & Culture for Warner Bros. Television Group, and Lita Abella, Senior Program Analyst for the State Bar of California. In a discussion moderated by Mintz Member Erin Natter, each panelist will discuss the challenges of return to office unique to their workplace and industry and the strategies that have worked well for them and their colleagues.

While most of the world has returned to some version of pre-pandemic normalcy with respect to everyday life, the typical workplace has not. The great remote-work experiment that nobody asked for has made a significant proportion of workers reluctant to return to the office, making it challenging for many companies to figure out what will work best for their operations. Themes for this event include return to office policies, what is and is not working, how to address employees’ mental health, and how to create connection amongst employees, whether they are working in-office or from home. Attendees will walk away with valuable insights and suggestions on handling their own return to office process.

Enjoy what’s sure to be a very interactive panel discussion and mingle with our guest speakers and other professionals over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
