Victoria A. Lipnic Quoted in Wall Street Journal Article on Supreme Court Affirmative Action Decision

Victoria A. Lipnic, Esq., head of the Human Capital Strategy Group at Resolution Economics, LLC and former EEOC Commissioner and acting Chair, is quoted in the Wall Street Journal article “Companies Expect New Challenges to Diversity Policies After Court Ruling.” The article highlights the reaction from employers and the legal community to the recently announced Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action in college admissions and how they expect it may affect the employment landscape:

“Victoria Lipnic, a former commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, said companies and workers should be wary of making a direct link between the Supreme Court’s education ruling and companies’ diversity practices. ‘The workforce is a much bigger pool that people are swimming in, and it’s filled with so much more opportunity,’ said Lipnic, who served as an assistant secretary of labor in George W. Bush’s administration, and is now a partner at the employment consulting firm Resolution Economics. ‘Opportunities in the workplace for everyone is not a zero-sum game,’ she said, referring to language in Chief Justice John Roberts’s majority opinion.”
