  • Summary

    Join us for an impactful NACE Town Hall, where we will delve into two critical issues that are shaping our professional landscape: the end of affirmative action and NACE's unpaid internships statement. We kick off with insights from a member poll, shedding light on the thoughts and concerns of professionals like you regarding these pressing matters. Then, we transition to a compelling panel discussion that delves deeper into these pivotal topics.

    In June 2023, the Supreme Court made a landmark decision, ending Affirmative Action in college admissions by ruling out the use of race as a determining factor. The implications of this decision extend far and wide, impacting both educational institutions and employers alike. Together, we will explore the far-reaching effects of this ruling and its implications.

    Moreover, we'll address NACE's recent release of a position statement advocating for the abolition of unpaid internships, calling for federal intervention. This statement places a strong emphasis on equity, emphasizing the inherent inequalities perpetuated by unpaid internships and championing the need for change. We firmly believe that all internships should be paid, and we're urging policymakers to take action on this issue.

    This webinar offers a unique opportunity for us to come together as we collectively strive for a more equitable future. Don't miss out on this chance to engage with these critical issues and be part of the change.
