Background & Synopsis:
While the general trend in diversity and inclusion training has been towards addressing anti-bias and anti-racism principles, as well as critical race theory, a recently issued Executive Order (EO 13950) titled “Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping” effectively bans these and other related concepts from the diversity and inclusion training provided by federal contractors and grantees. Specifically, the EO prohibits federal contractors and grant recipients from providing diversity, inclusion, and anti-discrimination training that includes a variety of so-called “divisive concepts” that do not reflect the realities of race and gender discrimination in this country. It also provides for strict enforcement mechanisms and severe penalties for any purported violations. While the recent presidential election and forthcoming change in administrations may ultimately affect the longevity of this EO, there may still be attempts by the federal government to pursue investigations and enforcement actions. This webinar will examine the potential adverse effects the EO could have on the diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts of companies and other organizations doing business with the federal government.

Panelists:
Janai S. Nelson, Associate Director-Counsel, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.
Shirley J. Wilcher, MA, JD, CAAP, Executive Director, American Association for Access Equity and Diversity (AAAED) Fund for Leadership, Equity, Access and Diversity (LEAD Fund)
Darius Withers, Portfolio Legal Lead Counsel – South Region, North America at Accenture (INVITED)
Moderated by Robert Drummer, Senior Attorney-Advisor for Acquisitions, U.S. Department of Education Federal Student Aid and NBA GPL Section Council member

Congratulations President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamal Harris!

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Senator Kamala Harris have officially been declared the winners of the 2020 Election. During the tumultuous times we are living through today, many have felt that they “[couldn't] breathe.” Many now feel they can breathe again as officials have finally issued results of the election.

The NBA Election Protection effort did not endeavor to favor one party over another but instead aimed to ensure a clear and fair path to the voting box for all! I am proud today to see that our efforts resulted in record voter turnout. Our election protection efforts truly protected the right to vote!

With election season officially over, now we must pivot to rebuild the soul of this country as lawyers, mothers, grandmothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, and brothers.
