Training Overview

How to deal with Employee Activism After Roe v. Wade. Learn how to respond to social and political concerns.

America has entered a new era of social and political activism. The U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, June 24th, declaring that the constitutional right to abortion no longer exists. This means that abortion rights will be rolled back in nearly half of the states immediately, with more restrictions to likely follow. Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and the Capitol riot exposed anger as the country wrestles with inequitable treatment based on race and gender.

Increasing numbers of employees are urging their organization to be more socially conscious in their policies and allocations of resources.

You need to understand how to deal with employee activism legally. It is imperative to strike a balance between embracing it and stifling it, demonstrating you value employee priorities while meeting the needs of your organization.
