A prominent labor and employment attorney, Grace E. Speights says that as a Black woman who is passionate about equity, she is often asked how she can justify working for employers, rather than employees, on issues such as employment discrimination claims. “We’re not out to teach employers how to discriminate against their employees or how to do any kind of bad things against their employees,” she said. “We are trying to teach them and counsel them on making sure their workplaces are safe, inclusive and respectful.” Speights, a partner at the international firm Morgan Lewis, will speak Wednesday at The Center Club in Baltimore as part of the Maryland State Bar Association’s 125th anniversary speakers series.
