Do you ever find yourself staying silent out of concern you might say the wrong thing during discussions about diversity? Does fear about offending someone cause you to avoid uncomfortable conversations? Staying silent can prevent progress. Here are tips for what you can do if this is how you feel, or tips you can share with others who may be hesitant to speak up in support of DEI.

~Ask questions that reflect a genuine and sincere desire to understand, learn, and support marginalized groups
~Read up and proactively educate yourself (joining this learning portal is a great example)
