National Foundation for Judicial Excellence (NFJE) 20th Annual Judicial Symposium

Minneapolis Shareholder Lorie Skjerven Gildea will speak during the "On Deck: State Courts and Challenges to Corporate Diversity and Inclusion Efforts" session. From state attorneys general to public-interest groups, parties are increasingly confronting organizations’ DEI programs and goals. And while the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent affirmative-action decision served as the catalyst, state appellate courts will serve as testing grounds for DEI questions under state constitutional and statutory law. This panel will discuss these upcoming legal debates and their judicial interpretative and philosophical keystones.

*Please note: Registration for the Symposium is for State Supreme Court and Appellate Judges only.
