A Balancing Act for Boards and Chief Executives: Free Speech and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on Campus

Upcoming Webinar
October 4, 2:00–3:00 PM ET

Tensions are increasing on campuses between the core values of freedom of speech and the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion, both of which are integral to institutional missions. Unfiltered, unbridled social media have further eroded respect for civil discourse and thoughtful deliberation. With extremist elements more willing to say abhorrent things, the angry rhetoric and ensuing clash of viewpoints can lead to unrest, even violence. Leaders must be able to articulate how the First Amendment protects people from oppression and violence.

Join AGB counsel Tom Hyatt and higher education leaders to discuss practical and proactive steps boards and leaders can take to model respectful civil discourse around campus flashpoints.
