Is your DEI work burning you out?  Do you feel like your organization has hit a DEI wall? 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is crucial for our organizations to thrive and achieve their missions. Although we have seen a lot of positive momentum in animal welfare around DEI, many leaders feel exhausted by what seem like insurmountable odds after repeated attempts to make progress are met with resistance, inaction, and even hostility. How can you move your efforts forward in these moments without causing damage to yourself and others?

Explore strategies for building an endurance mindset to DEI and try out tools to develop the stamina to continue progressing—even when you feel like you’ve hit the wall.


  • Identify common causes for hitting the DEI Wall
  • Explore tools to avoid burnout and build individual physical, mental, and emotional stamina
  • Determine organizational strategies and practices to maintain steady and sustainable progress toward DEI goals in the face of fatigue or blowback
