The New York Times describes how the impact of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion restricting racial preferences in higher education admissions may be felt across corporate America. Efforts to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in private businesses could be impacted by future related legal challenges that make it harder to build diverse workplaces.

Employment, executive compensation and employee benefits partner Doug Brayley noted, “The equal protection clause doesn’t apply to private employers, [but] challengers will feel emboldened to sue, knowing the Supreme Court is receptive to their claims.”
