Are DEI initiatives dying a slow death?

A wave of attacks against diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives from conservative leaders in the U.S. has brought renewed attention to such efforts amid calls to ban DEI programs.

In recent months, Republicans have taken swipes at DEI initiatives. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has called such programs at educational institutions “hostile to academic freedom.” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., criticized the state of Illinois for using federal funds to support DEI programs in elementary schools.

Some liberals have also criticized the latest DEI terminology intended to spur inclusion as sometimes alienating and performative.
