D&I Resources, Recommendations, & Inspiration

Book: The Person You Mean to Be: How Good People Fight Bias by Dolly Chugh

Person: I take inspiration from the people I meet who are doing work to improve the lives of others without fanfare.

Advice for someone starting, or continuing on their D&I journey:

“The work isn’t easy, but if you keep centered on your purpose and are flexible with your approach to meet different constituent’s needs you will make progress.”
