Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) are core to fostering innovative thinking. Existing theories demonstrate that to facilitate inclusion, multiple types of exclusionary dynamics, such as self-segregation, communication apprehension, and stereotyping and stigmatizing, must be overcome. The D&I team is dedicated to providing leadership to help the community achieve their goal. This effort is pursued via actions led by the core members. REACH OUT collects data and experiences from our community. INCLUDE monitors and recommends inclusion efforts. ORGANIZE focuses on in-conference organization efforts, such as adopting a code of conduct. INFORM communicates through various channels. SUPPORT coordinates D&I support from executive bodies and sponsors. SCOUT collates D&I efforts from other communities. COORDINATE manages all actions. Everyone in the DB community is welcome to join the initiative.
