Staying silent can prevent progress when it comes to improving DEI at your organization. Don't let your fear of saying the wrong thing prevent you from speaking up. Here are tips for what you can do if this is how you feel, or tips you can share with other leaders who may be hesitant to initiate DEI conversations.

~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)
~Lean into uncomfortable conversations, apologize when needed, express gratitude for corrections, and listen to understand (not to respond)
~Get started, keep going, and stay committed
