Our Story

In 2017, I realized that there wasn't a centralized space for DEI practitioners to be in community with each other and gain access to the resources we needed. I felt very isolated from the other practitioners doing this work, and the heaviness of working in the DEI space was overwhelming. So much so that I tweeted about it.

 

Fast forward four years, I decided to conduct a qualitative research study to get insight into the needs of other folks working in the DEI space. It turns out that over 280 DEI practitioners shared the same experiences as I did. Folks across different industries, age ranges, racial & ethnic identities, and years of experience in the field were all facing burnout, compassion fatigue, being drained, and longed for a centralized community with educational resources, higher pay, and mental health resources. 

                         

While I can't do much about individual compensation, I figured we could create transparency about pay rates in the DEI and provide a centralized space for all the resources and support we would need. So, DEI Offload™ is a space for us to build community, network & engage in healthy convo that isn’t only about the traumatic & exhausting work we do.

 

I want us to have space to simply exist and talk about navigating life in a healthy way. Talk about finding a healthy work-life balance and building genuine relationships in the DEI field while getting access to the professional resources we need.

In other words, DEI Offload™ was created to enhance the wellness of everyone working in the DEI space. DEI practitioners deserve space to simply exist and talk about navigating life healthily without the pressure of discussing trauma or exhausting work topics all the time. Whether you’re looking for a virtual space to connect with other practitioners, access to licensed mental health professionals, job postings, career opportunities, or just a place to get access to wellness resources and tips for maintaining a work-life balance – we’re here for you! Let's do this together!
