Seattle Braintrust: Building a More Durable Future for DEIB Initiatives

Braintrust | Seattle,WA | Exact Location TBD
Thursday, November 9, 2023
9:00am – 11:00am PST


The past few months have produced a surge of anti-DEIB rhetoric, activism, and litigation, in part driven by the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the use of affirmative action in college admissions. As legal challenges, shareholder proposals, and other headwinds mount, corporate and philanthropic leaders are confronting an uncertain path forward for their diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging initiatives.

While the moment demands near-term defensive moves to protect programs from legal risks, it also invites a conversation about increasing the long-term sustainability and durability of DEIB work. How can organizations design and implement future-proof strategies? And, what are the ways in which leaders and organizations can go on the offense to not only push back against today’s threats but to stake an even bolder future for justice and equity in the U.S.?

Join NationSwell and fellow members for breakfast and a facilitated discussion during which we will isolate the most critical and solvable challenges, surface our biggest learnings and recommendations, and think aloud in draft mode about what we can do to prepare for the road ahead.

NationSwell’s events and experiences are designed to bring together diverse, purpose-driven leaders and organizations for learning, inspiration, relationship-building, and societal impact.
