This list was put together by members of the EHHD Diversity Task Force and represents resources that have been combined from a variety of DEI resources in the field. It is not inclusive of all resources nor have all resources been vetted individually. This list is meant to be a resource on resources, a place for faculty, staff, and students to learn more from a variety of sources to engage in new ways in the realm of diversity, equity, and inclusion work.
