Constangy is pleased to announce the launch of a tailored Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) compliance training program for employers. The 2023 Supreme Court decision regarding affirmative action significantly altered the DEI landscape for employers, and organizations committed to DEI need to understand the long-term implications of this case. Constangy partner and co-chair of the firm’s DEI practice group, Cara Crotty, is partnering with organizations to ensure its DEI practices comply with the law.

With this customized presentation, Cara will equip executive leaders with specific information needed to understand the risks and strategies around DEI today. Organizations will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Supreme Court’s landmark decisions in Students for Fair Admissions v. President & Fellows of Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina. Cara will delve into the specifics of the ruling and its impact on DEI programs in the workplace. Attendees will learn from recent legal actions involving DEI policies, identify potential pitfalls and legal concerns surrounding DEI practices in their workplace, and enable the organization to proactively address compliance issues. Cara will identify actionable steps and best practices to ensure the organization’s DEI programs are compliant, practical, and proactive. She will also equip your team with the knowledge to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion effectively.
