D&I Alliance: Resources

D&I Moments

D&I Moments are one- to three-minute conversations about DEI topics that happen at the beginning of meetings, classes, and other college gatherings. D&I Moments are intended to help us normalize DEI conversations; spark curiosity and conversation; and learn and grow as scientists, engineers, and allies. Everyone contributes a D&I Moment to share with their group at one time or another.

Diversity Community of Practice (DCoP) reading list

Members of the University's Diversity Community of Practice (DCoP) have curated a DEI reading list of recommended books, presentations, videos, and other resources intended to help build community and encourage conversation around shared interests. 

A few ways to make use of this list include:

  1. Invite individual folks or create a group to read with you by adding your name to the "Read with me?" column
  2. Endorse a book by leaving your brief review and impressions in the "Endorsed by" column. Connect with others who have endorsed the same book and meet to discuss it.
  3. Add what you've been reading, watching, listening to, or appreciating to the list and find other like-minded enthusiasts.
