President Issues EO on “Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping”

October 1, 2020

On September 22, President Trump issued an “Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping.” While the EO does not establish a blanket prohibition on diversity and inclusion (D&I) training of employees by government contractors, it does set forth restrictions on the content of such training. The U.S. Department of Labor must undertake a rulemaking to implement the terms of the EO and that rulemaking could put forth a better understanding of the restrictions required under the EO before it can take effect. AGC continues to review the EO and will provide additional information.
