This panel will include discussion of everything from workplace harassment issues to bosses who don't like feedback to what to do when your company says it is downsizing and plans to lay you off. Panelists will include JAWS members with firsthand experience dealing with the vagaries of the modern workplace, as well as an expert on workplace issues and discrimination based on age, race, gender and sexual preference. Panelists will discuss their own experiences and include practical advice on how to navigate workplace challenges, as well as when to stay and fight or cut your losses and move on.
