After countrywide protests against systemic racism in 2020 highlighted the urgency of addressing diversity, equity & inclusion in the workplace, organizations made commitments to change and pledged to advance DEI initiatives.
Since then, many companies are still navigating the logistics of moving DEI goals forward, especially when it comes to addressing conversations around these topics within the workplace. This guide includes an overview of the rights of both employers and employees with respect to non-work-related discussions as well as some issues that may arise as a result of the protests.
