Topic: Legal Ramifications Being Raised in Challenges to
‘Critical Race Theory’ in Diversity Trainings

In 2020, President Trump issued an Executive Order (E.O.) prohibiting government employers as well as private sector employers with federal contracts from engaging in workplace training allegedly based upon “Critical Race Theory (CRT).” Although this E.O. was rescinded by President Biden, the groundswell of local and private efforts attacking various aspects of anti-racism workplace training presents new and interesting legal challenges for employers and human resource professional engaged in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). This presentation will discuss legal and human resource concerns related to DEI workplace training given the ongoing CRT critiques, challenges and bans.
