Understand the history that shapes our ineffective U.S. anti-discrimination laws
Anti-discrimination law was designed to disrupt the social hierarchies at work. But what prevented true progress from happening? And what can we learn from the history of this law to shape our views of what needs to happen to make our work cultures safer? Deb will cover a basic history of the evolution of these laws to set expectations for moving the needle.
The founder of Dignity Together, Deb Falzoi boosts employees outside of work and teaches their employers what it means to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace. She educates employees and validates their experiences so they can take back their dignity. She also trains employers on the dynamics of workplace abuse and how they can honor employees’ power.
She built a base of more than 10,000 workplace abuse legislation supporters, the largest by state in the nation. She’s helped hundreds of targeted employees understand their abuse situations, discover their self-worth, and learn how to move on from their toxic work cultures. She’s been quoted in numerous media outlets including Redbook, Forbes, Monster, Alternet, Elephant Journal, Thrive Global, and Truthout.
She hosts the “Screw the Hierarchy” podcast, founded EndWorkplaceAbuse.com, co-hosts a Dignity Together support group, and is a co-founder of Re-Define, summits and retreats aimed at helping targets heal and re-define our workplaces.
