People in the tech industry are familiar with the concept of “failing fast” and “failing forward”—using failure to learn and experiment. This is also necessary for DEI, but fear is a huge inhibitor.

You don’t need to be an expert at the start, but you do need to model a growth mindset for other leaders and hold yourself accountable for outcomes.
