Chairwoman and Commissioner of the New York City Commission on Human Rights Carmelyn Malalis (U.S. FWN100™ '09) weighs in on her leadership style, the virtue of multi-tasking and being comfortable in her own skin as a queer woman of color in this interview with Adam Bryant for Corner Office, a weekly New York Times column on leadership.
Filipino American lawyer and FWN member Carmelyn P. Malalis, who was appointed Chair of the New York City Commission on Human Rights in November last year by Mayor Bill de Blasio, is expected to push hard for equality in the work place.
Malalis has a history of successfully combating discrimination and harassment in the workplace through her representation of employees from a variety of industries and income levels. Her dual role as Chair and Commissioner positions her to lead investigations of complaints of discrimination and retaliation in employment, housing and public accommodation.
