With continued violence against Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), including violent racism by law enforcement and hate crimes against our Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, many of us are saddened, frustrated, and even depressed about the need to see radical change. We long for a quick fix, but the real work necessary to support a more diverse, equitable, accessible, and inclusive work environment requires that we help bring change by changing ourselves.  Join Deputy Commissioner and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Cecilia B. Loving as she shares her perspective on how to create a more inclusive world by being the solution. So often we look beyond ourselves for change when the real change starts within.  Through Commissioner Loving’s work on Meditating with Compassion, Healing with Generosity, and Leading with Love, she will share tools on how legal practitioners and administrators can develop personal practices to be more proactive in supporting a more inclusive work environment.  She will teach the importance of welcoming yourself to uplift others, honoring your purpose to give your best, being silent to listen to what is important, sharing your story to find common ground, walking in balance to achieve harmony, leading change to reduce implicit bias, and developing the tools to co-create a better work environment.

Cecilia B. Loving is a thought leader in diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion. She is a winner of the National Diversity Council’s 2021 Top 100 Diversity Officers Award; the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services’ 2021 Innovation Award for FDNY’s Inclusive Culture Strategy; Lawline’s Top Women Faculty of 2020 Award; and the City Bar Association’s 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Champion Award. She oversees diversity and inclusion initiatives for over 17,000 members of the FDNY, including but not limited the Fire Commissioner’s Taskforce on Racial Inclusion & Equity, and the Fire Commissioner’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion, FDNY Courageous Conversations on Racial Inclusion, Bravest Women Talks, Diversity and Inclusion Innovation Labs, Inclusive Leadership Training, and similar initiatives. She is founder of the Mindfulness Group at FDNY and is Chair of the NYC Bar Association’s first Mindfulness and Well-Being in the Law Committee. She has written several books, including God is a Lawyer Too and Unbroken Circles: Holding Space, Healing Harm and Transcending Edges, as well as numerous articles and blogs, including “Some Ways to Help Racial Healing”; “Setting the Tone Right Through Inclusive Leadership”; “The Power of Inclusion: Treating Others Well is Essential to Our Well-Being”; “More Support for Mindfulness: Reduction of Implicit Bias”; and “Restorative Circles: Finding Solutions from Ancient Traditions.”
