How and when in the interview process would you go about asking about a company's philosophy on/commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)?

I'm actively interviewing with 5 companies right now, but the one that seems most likely to give me an offer is also the only one where I've so far only been interviewed by 3 white men Is there a delicate way to ask why there aren't women and BIPOC involved in the hiring decision process / whether leadership at the company is more inclusive?

"Hey, I'd love to know a bit more about your diversity and inclusion philosophy and initiatives. It's something that's important to me, so I'd love to hear a bit about it."

And I would say in the second interview/in the mix with other questions that you're asking.

like

Yeah I think including it with any other questions you'd normally ask, like about the team and such. But, if it's a really inclusive place to work, they'll gladly talk to you about it in any context at any point in the interview. So bringing it up more strongly can be a good vetting tool...

SEEKING OPINIONS & FEEDBACK: I love the honest & practical discussions here, where people can freely identify things that are going on & seek guidance.

Wondering whether anybody’d be interested in some kind of more purposeful community- i.e., gathering w/fellow lawyers to pursue some specific mental health & well-being goals? We’d provide some counseling/coaching type content, in bite sized chunks, but have regular discussions to connect & encourage one another on applying the content IRL.
