A More Perfect Union?  The Ongoing Struggle for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Latinos have always been an integral part of the American fabric despite facing persistent exclusion and division. Recently, civil rights progress has stalled and even reversed. The 2023 Supreme Court ruling against affirmative action mirrors a troubling trend sidelining diversity and inclusion efforts in universities, workplaces, and communities. With some companies scaling back diversity programs amidst legal uncertainties, initiatives aimed at fostering diversity have encountered setbacks. In public educational institutions, opposition to DEI initiatives has intensified debates on race and belonging, bringing culture war battles into the classroom. How do we counter this trend and advocate for a firm stance on diversity, equity, and inclusion? Join us for an enlightening discussion on the implications for Latino professionals, entrepreneurs, and leaders.
