DEI in Focus: Understanding, Defending, and Advancing Together

DEI in Focus: Understanding, Defending, and Advancing Together 

NationSwell MainStage
Thursday, June 20th, 2024
4:00pm – 5:00pm ET / 1:00pm – 2:00pm PT


The nation is experiencing a whiplash to its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs and progress. DEI programs currently face relentless attacks in legislatures and courtrooms across the country. These assaults and their impact undermine not only the value of specific programs but also threaten to undo generations of inclusion and impact. The need to defend programs that uplift our diversity and defend access to the American dream is more important than ever. 

Join NationSwell for a conversation with Stacey Abrams as we ground ourselves in what Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is and isn’t, how and why it’s being attacked, and how to talk about DEI that’s rooted in common values.
