Recently, an article in The New York Times called ‘America Is Under Attack’: Inside the Anti-D.E.I. Crusade by Nicholas Confessore was published highlighting conservative activists who aim to eliminate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

In response to the article, our CEO, Anika Rahman, wrote a letter to the editor about the importance of DEI and why it is a bedrock principle that encompasses our nation’s values of equity and belonging for all. In a time when issues such as xenophobia, Islamophobia and anti-semitism are heightened as well as the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Affirmative Action; the work of the National Diversity Council is even more critical.


As the National Diversity Council continues to be a resource and advocate for the value of diversity, equity and inclusion, we look forward to having you on this journey with us as we keep you updated on how we are transforming equity in our workplaces and communities.
