Firms From KKR to Coors Flag DEI as a Risk to Their Bottom Lines

JetBlue Airways Corp., Molson Coors Beverage Co., and Leidos Holdings, Inc. are part of a growing group of companies listing DEI as a “risk factor” in their securities filings, citing a potential business impact from taking too much or too little action on diversity.

The flurry of securities filings noting potential legal and reputation risks stemming from diversity, equity and inclusion efforts follows the US Supreme Court’s June decision curtailing affirmative action in college admissions, as well as political backlash from conservative groups that say corporate DEI programs discriminate against White and male workers.
