ACCP Applauds Supreme Court Ruling Upholding Workplace Equality Guidelines

“Supreme Court Ruling is a major win for equality in the workplace and underscores diverse workforces as both good for business and society,” says ACCP Chief Carolyn Berkowitz

FAIRFAX, VA – The Association of Corporate Citizenship Professionals today applauded the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Muldrow v. City of St. Louis affirming the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s guidelines supporting the ability of workers to defend themselves against discrimination in the workplace. 

In response to the Supreme Court’s ruling, Association of Corporate Citizenship Professionals (ACCP) president and CEO Carolyn Berkowitz released the following statement supporting the court’s decision:

“As the nation’s leading membership organization made up of social impact professionals at more than 250 of the world’s leading companies, we applaud today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision as a significant win for fairness and affirming diversity as a workplace value that is both good for business and for society.”

“We are heartened by today’s ruling upholding EEOC guidelines that employers ‘should take voluntary action to correct the effects of past discrimination and prevent present and future discrimination.’ 

As more companies continue to see the benefit of investing in social impact work, this ruling should be welcome news for the growing number of corporate executives that continue to support investments in workplace initiatives that promote diversity, fairness, and equality for all of their workers. 

Furthermore, the Supreme Court decision today highlights the strength of corporate diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives as beneficial to creating more diverse and equitable workplaces, which is both good for the business’ bottom-line and for all people who value fairness.”  

ACCP’s members are comprised of CSR and ESG professionals at more than 250 of the world’s leading companies who are advising corporate executives on social impact strategies and have already been preparing executives about the need for companies to be ready for continuing regulations and increased focus on DEI practices.
