James E. Rooney, Chamber President & CEO, Urges Business Leaders to Recommit to ESG, DEI, & Economic Inclusion
The decision from the U.S. Supreme Court striking down affirmative action not only threatens the future of higher education, but also the future of our workplaces and business community. By limiting the efforts to diversify campuses across the country, employers will have a less diverse pipeline for the recruitment and hiring of employees. More diverse teams and workplaces – in every industry – are more productive and profitable, and a workplace culture that is fortified by the pillars of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles are stronger and more successful.
As higher education institutions wrestle with next steps for their admissions processes, it is imperative that as business leaders we ensure investments in and the elevation of our ESG and DEI initiatives to remind our workforce, Board members, and all stakeholders of our ongoing commitment to equity.
As for the Chamber, we will continue to champion economic inclusion and equitable commerce. Ensuring equity requires strategic action. Join us.
Our member, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, outlined how employers can be vigilant and protect their diversity initiatives in light of the Supreme Court’s decision.
Massachusetts has always led the way in historic steps forward, and our business community is no different. This moment requires bold action, big steps forward, and determination to handle the hard work ahead. Let’s move forward, not backward.
