Topic:  Sexual Harassment Prevention in Today’s Workplace
Speaker:  Rodney Klein

We’ve all seen the news stories. Women (and men) sexually harassed. Powerful figures fallen. And, the organizations they represented left reeling. What if it didn’t have to be that way? Learn how to address bad workplace behavior before you become the next headline. Hear about sexual harassment, #MeToo and #TimesUp. Discover how to create and maintain a civil and professional working environment. And, discuss risk factors for harassment and the roles of leadership and training in combatting them.  

Speaker Bio:

Rodney Klein graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and was hired by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as an Investigator in 1992. Mr. Klein investigated individual complaints of employment discrimination, along with large class and systemic cases. 

He worked as a liaison between the EEOC and various fair employment practice agencies. And, he was the San Antonio Office’s Charge Receipt Supervisor, responsible for receiving and processing all incoming discrimination complaints. Currently, Mr. Klein is the Dallas District’s Outreach and Training Manager.

Topic: Onboarding: The Key to Employee Retention and Engagement
Speaker: Amy Ross

While some employers believe that new hire onboarding is complete after the new hire’s first day, the truth is that onboarding has just begun. Onboarding serves to integrate the new hires within the company and its culture, as well as help them transition into their role. In this presentation, I will discuss the implications of not having a structured onboarding program and the important elements that should be included in one. When employers treat new hire onboarding as an ongoing talent strategy, they will begin to see their company flourish.


  • ·         Learn the numbers associated with hiring and retaining team members
  • ·         Make the business case for investing in a structured onboarding program
  • ·         Learn how to build an effective onboarding program
