In two recent decisions, the Supreme Court effectively ended affirmative action programs at colleges and universities. These rulings have led to questions about the legality of employer diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs. In fact, 13 Republican attorneys general wrote to Fortune 100 CEOs suggesting that certain employer DEI programs could be considered discriminatory.
Join us for an informative and timely webinar on the Supreme Court decisions, their potential impact on employers, and how employers can work to achieve diverse and inclusive workplaces within the bounds of the law.
After attending this session participants will:
- Understand what the Supreme Court held in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina
- Learn about the existing legal framework that governs reverse-race discrimination claims against employers
- Be able to determine whether and to what extent certain corporate DEI programs pose legal risk and if so, how that risk can be mitigated while still achieving diverse and inclusive workplaces
