ADEA Statement in Support of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Workplace Training – Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(Business Wire)–The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) is dedicated to fostering a welcoming, diverse, inclusive and humanistic environment in every area of dental education—classrooms, clinics, laboratories, meeting/collaboration spaces, research, administrative offices and in our communities. On Sept. 22, 2020, Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping (EO) was issued. The EO prohibits federal agencies, contractors and grantees from providing employee training that asserts that “one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex” or the concept that “members of one race or sex cannot or should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex.” While we agree with these two principles, the EO also prohibits workplace training programs by the federal government and federal grantees that are grounded in the research on unconscious bias, sexual harassment and anti-racism.

In recent months, Black Lives Matter, the Anti-Racism Movement and the COVID-19 pandemic have

Ellen DeGeneres publicly addresses workplace toxicity claims for first time

Ellen DeGeneres kicked off Season 18 of her talk show by publicly addressing the controversy surrounding the show for the first time.

“If you’re watching because you love me, thank you,” DeGeneres said at the top of Monday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show. “If you’re watching because you don’t love me, welcome.” She went on to quip, “How was everybody’s summer, good? Mine was great. Super terrific.”

DeGeneres’s namesake program has been the subject of troubling reports for months with claims of intimidation, racial insensitivity and sexual misconduct in the workplace. The 62-year-old host, who apologized to staffers twice for the workplace toxicity, was accused of fostering the environment, and an investigation is ongoing, though three senior staff members — Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and Jonathan Norman — were let go so far. She addressed all that in her monologue in front of a virtual audience.
