SCOTUS Prohibits Affirmative Action But Validates DEI

November 30 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Visit Event Website

The recent 6-3 Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruling that race-conscious admissions programs at Harvard and the University of North Carolina are unlawful will undoubtedly shape the future of affirmative action policies and have significant implications for society as a whole. Are Organizational Diversity Efforts Now Illegal? Does this mean even technology organizations have to scrap their diversity efforts and lose the benefits of diverse perspectives that experts say can lead to improved organizational performance?

Join us for a continental breakfast or virtually for what promises to be a dynamic panel discussion with prominent legal experts and company leaders as they dissect the implications of the SCOTUS SFFA (Students for Fair Admissions) decision and share their insights on DEI in organizations -law firms included. Introductory remarks will explain the decision and explore various types of DEI goals. The panel will be facilitated by internationally known DEI expert and author of The Diversity Factor: Igniting Superior Organizational Performance, Mr. James McKim who will lead the discussion about the decision and the steps that can be taken to ensure diversity efforts remain legal as well as focused on improving organizational outcomes.
