Each month, we announce a new online event and open the registration for that particular event through this page.
HR leaders and experts in their fields openly present their best practices, visionary ideas, practical solutions to challenges, and insight-provoking learning lessons. Discussions are candid and stimulating. Participants acquire key takeaways that can be immediately applied to their daily work and careers.

While there is no cost to attend, these events are limited to guests who are HR VPs, Directors, Managers, developing HR professionals aspiring to be in corporate HR roles, and participants/alumni of the UCSD Extended Studies HR Certificate and Leadership Programs.

NEXT EVENT:  Three Tools to Stay Out of Court

Date & Time: 6/8/23 - 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

As we know, workplace litigation continues to be rampant, especially in the Golden State (for lawyers!) Assuming you don’t aspire to be the next defendant, what can you do?

In this session, our speaker, a former employment law attorney, will share with us what he believes are three practices that most effectively minimize the risk of workplace legal trouble. The three practices are:

  1. Weight forward on skis;
  2. The No-FEAR conversation; and
  3. The Same Day Summary.

Join us and learn these concepts and how to implement them.

Our Speaker: Jathan Janove, a former state bar Employment Lawyer of the Year, writes the “Putting Humanity into HR” column for SHRM, and is a Master Coach and Practice Leader with the Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching group, including writing the “Coach’s Corner” blog and coordinating the pro bono program for nonprofit organizations. He's an instructor in the HR Master Series at the University of California, San Diego, Division of Extended Studies, and author, most recently, of Hard-Won Wisdom: True Stories From The Management Trenches (HarperCollins 2017). He can be reached at
