Is the Supreme Court Decision on Affirmative Action a Stumbling Block for Diversity Pipelines?

The US Supreme Court’s recent decision against affirmative action in college admissions may hinder corporate efforts to diversify, potentially limiting the career options for BIPOC candidates. The ruling effectively blocks colleges from considering race as an express factor in granting admission, possibly impeding the college-to-career pipeline for diverse candidates.

While many corporations emphasize diversity, the top ranks of Fortune 500 companies remain predominantly white. This ruling may further challenge these diversity initiatives.
