SAN FRANCISCO – In the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling ending affirmative action in college admissions, speculation is building that corporate diversity efforts are at risk. However, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has made clear the Court’s ruling applies only to universities, not workplaces.

Kelly Greenwood, Founder & CEO of Mind Share Partners, issued this statement.

"If companies cave to political pressure to scale back their DEI efforts, this will send a message to Black, Latinx, LGBTQ+, and other historically marginalized employees –and customers– that says we actually don’t have your backs, after all.

That’s not good for corporate recruitment and retention. Nor for employees’ wellbeing.

Scaling back or muting DEI programs will likely exacerbate existing mental health challenges in the workplace. 75% of all workers, including at the C-level, report one mental health symptom yearly.

The workplace is just now beginning to see momentum around taking wellbeing and mental health into account as a business imperative.

Our message to companies is: Stay the course with DEI. Don’t undo progress that will harm your workforce on multiple fronts."
