Marilynn Schuyler, Fisher Phillips LLP; Christopher Metzler, National Urban League; Inderdeep Chatrath, Center for Workplace Compliance
The Supreme Court decisions in the cases challenging affirmative action in admissions at Harvard and the University of North Carolina will be analyzed in this session. What now? What’s next? And what does this mean for federal contractors? These questions will be addressed in this interactive session. We will provide an opportunity for participants to share perspectives on the future of affirmative action, and strategies for maintaining (and expanding) diversity regardless of the outcome.
