We all hear the buzz words, “Diversity” and “Inclusion,” but what does that mean when it comes to
running a successful law firm? More than you think.

Join former Kroger Grocery Co. VP Chief Diversity Officer, Reuben Shaffer as he shares the value of embracing diversity as you build your firm. As St. Petersburg continues to increase its’ cultural diversity, law firms are falling short in reflecting the diversity within the local community, creating an invisible line between the potential client and the attorney. Under Shaffers’ tenure as Kroger’s Chief Diversity Officer, Kroger was named one of the top ten US corporations for inclusion by business organization, Omnikal.

Currently, Kroger ranks as the largest supermarket company in the world and as one of the top three largest retail companies, based on sales, along with Walmart and Amazon. Ranked #17 on the Fortune 500 list, the Cincinnati based supermarket giant employs 431,000 associates serving 2,796 retail food stores. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insight from a business leader who understands “Diversity,” “Inclusion,” and “Profits!”
