The recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v.

This landmark decision has far-reaching implications and is being exploited by advocacy groups to challenge current norms.

Key topics will include:

  • Discussion of the federal agency response
  • Analysis of the decision and its legal ramifications
  • Practical considerations involving the impact of the decision on corporate DEI policies, ESG programs, and government contracting
  • Improving the reliability of job availability data and benchmarking
