Ex-Trump Administration Officials Target Corporate Diversity Efforts

America First Legal wants to quell DE&I initiatives

Activision Blizzard and Kellogg Co have joined a growing list of major U.S. companies to face claims from a group founded by former Trump administration officials that efforts to diversify their workforces amount to illegal discrimination.

This week, America First Legal urged the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to investigate Activision's alleged use of gender and racial preferences in hiring and internship programs, after lodging a similar complaint against Kellogg last week.

America First has filed complaints with the EEOC involving Starbucks, McDonald's, Morgan Stanley, Anheuser-Busch Companies and Hershey, among other companies designated on its website as "woke corporations." The group is headed by Stephen Miller, who was a senior adviser to Republican former President Donald Trump known for his hardline stance on immigration. Ex-Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows and former Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker are board members.
