Increasing diversity, equity and inclusion is a business imperative. It also is, or should be, a matter of an organization’s values.

But just because the goal is laudable does not mean the steps to get there are necessarily lawful. The laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, ethnicity and gender, for example, also apply to DEI initiatives. Other laws come into play, too.

This program will cover some of the more salient legal and other risks that may arise in implementing a robust and sustainable DEI initiative. The emphasis will be on practical suggestions to minimize these risks and maximize the benefits of your DEI program


  • Define and understand inter-relationship among diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Identify some of the more salient legal and other risks in a DEI initiative
  • Evaluate alternative approaches to minimizing the legal and other risks and maximizing the value of your DEI initiatives
