Envisioning Our Work Ahead: DEI Focused Organizations and Leaders

What now? That is the question that many organizations, universities, and recruiting professionals who occupy the diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging space asked in light of recent national and global political developments. How can we continue our commitment to DEIB? What strategies are others implementing to advance their work? How do I remain motivated during challenging times?
