How can DEI withstand changes to Affirmative Action?

While the legal challenges to Affirmative Action are bad news, they’re not the end of the road for DEI. As DEI practitioners, we can overcome this wave of political resistance and stick to the path. We can continue to build inclusive organizational cultures. Our toolbelt includes the visible commitment of leaders, support for employee resource groups, sector-wide outreach, education, and more.

On this episode of Just One Q, Dominique chats with guest Dr. Shirley Knowles, Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer at Progress, a customer-centred tech company based in Massachusetts. They discuss the importance of maintaining DEI commitments despite the recent changes to Affirmative Action in the U.S. and some simple, actionable tips for DEI practitioners facing resistance.
