Navigating DEI Backlash: Organizational and Employee-Centered Strategies
Thursday, November 02
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (ET)
#NDCVoices Webinar series
Resistance to DEI efforts is not new. The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which struck down race-conscious admissions programs at Harvard and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, had a ripple effect for DEI efforts in the corporate sector. With a rise in anti-DEI and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation across the country, DEI practitioners are facing increased pushback and scrutiny. In today’s unclear regulatory environment, organizations may be discouraged to continue with their commitment to DEI efforts as resistance mounts both from employees and external stakeholders.
What can organizations do to stay the course and effectively overcome DEI pushback while making strides toward their goals? In this webinar, our panelists will discuss the impact of recent legislation on DEI corporate efforts and the strategies available to organizations to strengthen DEI and regain employee commitment.
