The Harvard/UNC Affirmative Action Decision: Key Considerations for Corporate Diversity Programs and Higher Ed

July 11, 2023


O’Melveny’s DE&I and Affirmative Action Task Force hosted a webinar to discuss the Supreme Court’s long-awaited Harvard/UNC affirmative action decision.

Our panelists addressed implications for the college admissions process as well as potential broader implications, including on corporate diversity programs.

We have been actively engaged in this area in recent months, including advising clients on the emerging litigation landscape. Our team also has been writing on this topic since March. You will find links to our alerts below.
