The Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action Ruling & the Nonprofit Sector

2024 Partners for Justice Conference (2)

The Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action Ruling & the Nonprofit Sector

Room 350: 2:15 PM to 3:30 PM

Through two cases decided this past summer—Students for Fair Admissions Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College and Students for Fair Admissions Inc. v. University of North Carolina (SFA), the Supreme Court effectively halted the practice of affirmative action in college and university admissions. This panel will consider the ruling’s potential reverberations beyond academia. The discussion will focus on the impact of the ruling as it pertains to key issues in the nonprofit sector, such as race-conscious services, programs, and/or internal operations including diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.
