Upholding Diversity Recruiting Goals Post-SCOTUS

Brave Lil’ Convos is our monthly series, which equips people with the skills, tools, and vocabulary to partake in brave conversations in the workplace. Thank you to those who could join us for the first Fall session of 2023, featuring guest speaker and employment lawyer Rebeca Lopez! We discussed diversity hiring and recruiting post-SCOTUS. Here is a takeaway of key points and court rulings for those who weren’t able to attend the discussion.

  • On June 29, 2023, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ended affirmative action in college admissions.

  • Since early July, there has been an increase in lawsuits/scrutiny against companies offering diversity programs.

  • Legal obligations to DEI programs include opening opportunities and eliminating discrimination.

  • Employers cannot make decisions based on protected characteristics.

  • Successful hiring practices allow employers to locate skilled employees, provide equal opportunity, and prevent and defend against litigation.

These are just some takeaways from our previous Brave Lil’ Convos session. To sign up for our next session, visit the registration link here for October 18th.
