RE: Roundtable with other standards bodies on DEI

Hi Mallory,

Will you be able to make it to meeting on Tuesday 10/12? We will put this on the agenda if you can make it.

Hi all,

Perhaps for our next agenda, but there's been a suggestion that W3C's PWE send a representative to a closed roundtable on best practices in DEI in tech standards bodies.

The Inclusive Naming Initiative [0] has a workstream on standards bodies. After some initial research on what various standards bodies are doing with respect to DEI, there's been a suggestion to bring together representatives from each of the SDOs that responded to the survey for an off-the-record conversation about DEI initiatives later this year.

I think someone from the PWE group would be best placed to attend that.
I'm active in the INI, the INI standards workstream, and on this list, but I am not very active (yet) here.

Suggestions welcome. Happy to answer any questions at this stage,
