About the Program

The issue of diversity and inclusion programs remains top of mind for many organizations, and rightly so. Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision striking down race-based decision making in the college and university admissions context, many organizations are assessing the impact of that ruling on diversity programs, including those that apply to vendors and suppliers. 

At the same time, organizations are facing increasing scrutiny and questions from various stakeholders regarding their diversity initiatives.  Supplier diversity issues in particular, raise unique questions that warrant a fresh look under the current political and legal landscape.   

Join us for this important session, where our panelists discuss:

  • Statutory framework for supplier diversity initiatives
  • How the SFFA decision may be used to bolster challenges to supplier diversity programs
  • Legal risks and challenges to supplier diversity programs
  • Strategies and considerations for adapting supplier diversity programs in the face of SFFA
