White House Orders on DE&I Draw Ire of ASAE
The administration is making moves to defund any program tied to critical race theory
This week, the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) urged the White House to rescind recent directives to federal agencies to end diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training sessions for government workers.
Under orders from the White House, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) have instructed federal agencies to identify all required and voluntary DEI training sessions offered within the federal government that involve terms like “critical race theory,” “white privilege,” and “systemic racism,” and cancel all contracts where the law allows. This includes any DEI sessions paid for with taxpayer dollars, including training offered by federal contractors.
ASAE and other proponents of workplace DEI training have been critical of the White House’s actions and motives.
