If topics that intersect DEI like critical race theory are perceived as too controversial to discuss in an academic setting, how can they ever be addressed in a professional setting?

In this episode of Race at Work, UCLA Law professor Dr. Laura Gómez stresses the fact that although there have been civil rights movements in the past and laws designed to increase equality, inequality still persists in American society.
