DEI in Focus: Understanding, Defending, and Advancing Together

Virtual Roundtable
Thursday, February 22, 2024
4:00pm – 5:00pm ET / 1:00pm – 2:00pm PT

About

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.

In partnership with Stacey Abrams –– lawyer, voting rights activist, political leader, and bestselling author –– we’re thrilled to bring you a series of virtual conversations on the imperative of safeguarding DEI in America, and tools, resources, and insights to bring into your own work.

Join us for the first event of the series 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.
