I referred to this resource when we were setting ours up: https://nbdiversity.rutgers.edu/dei-committee-good-start-guide

One of the biggest resources I tell people is that DEI is about creating a culture where people feel like they can speak up, and that they know their rights. I tried starting with this: https://www.comparably.com/news/10-companies-with-impactful-di-initiatives-heres-what-theyre-doing

One suggestion as you are setting this up is to be very clear on the intent of the committee and what they own (decisions, outcomes, metrics, etc). Otherwise, it’s a group of people who are well intentioned but have no real power and no way of knowing if they are successful. I’ve found that to move the needle across a DEI agenda, you must be influencing the people who have decision making authority to value both inclusion and diversity and to reflect that value in their decision making as well as the systems and structures they own.

I currently run the DEI meetings for our region and the biggest struggle I have had is getting members to participate on calls. Unfortunately, we aren't all in close proximity so if you have the option to be in person you definitely want to find a way to motivate your team. Come up with ideas together and set deadlines for those projects. We do have a calendar of events/themes for each month now such as April is autism awareness so our focus will be around that topic.

I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!
