EDGE Certified Foundation’s Statement on the US Supreme Court Ruling against Affirmative Action

“The Supreme Court’s ruling on affirmative action is incredibly disappointing and could roll back years of progress in efforts to address historical inequalities and promote equal opportunities in the country. Establishing diverse, equitable and inclusive environments requires an intentional and prioritized approach and affirmative action has contributed to the efforts of leveling the playing field for all. It has enhanced communities, improved opportunities for historically underrepresented groups and fueled the American economy with a highly diverse, highly competitive talent pool. Diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces are more agile, innovative, resilient, and successful and the Supreme Court’s ruling will make it harder for businesses to realize these benefits. This decision reduces the opportunity to maintain a robust and diverse university-educated talent pool and will hurt the ability of US businesses to stay competitive and relevant in an increasingly diverse world.”
