Intended to kick off an extended effort during the next year in EDUCAUSE to help people gain usable knowledge of why diversity, equity, and inclusion is important and how to increase it in the higher education IT workforce, Stony Brook University CIO Melissa Woo co-authored an article that appeared in the May 2 issue of EDUCAUSE Review Online titled "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Call to Action."

Woo and her colleague, Keith McIntosh, associate vice president and chief information officer of digital instruction and information services at Ithaca College, argue that the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion are "imperative for improving decision making and outcomes," and "should be valued as much as budgets, strategies, governance, and the technologies we deploy and support."  They lay out seven suggestions for the higher education IT workforce to immediately take action on and welcomed ideas from the online publication's community at-large.
