The Supreme Court’s recent Harvard decision has raised questions over the legality of employer diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs. Engineering firms are increasingly embracing DEI strategies to attract and keep talent but does a firm’s approach to DEI potentially put it at risk?
Molly Stenger with the law firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher will brief attendees on the Harvard decision and what employers need to know to achieve a diverse and inclusive workplace within the bounds of the law.
After attending this session participants will:
- Understand what the Supreme Court held in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvardand 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
