This session will review significant developments in EEO and DEI over the past year.  We will provide an update on legal decisions from the Supreme Court, Courts of Appeals, and federal and state courts.  A review of salient legislative updates will also be discussed.  If there is a case with particularly attention-getting facts or allegations, novel application of the law, or a new law with broad implications, we discuss for potential application to your workplace.
