DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion) Resources

Want to be a better ally? One of the best ways to be an ally is to educate yourself. While it can be tempting to ask your colleagues from marginalized communities to help you understand their perspectives, this can put them in an awkward position, especially in the workplace. People from marginalized communities are often over-burdened with the invisible labor of educating those around them.

Whether you want to become a better ally or understand different perspectives within your own community, there are countless resources available. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we are open to your recommendations for additional materials.
