Resource Library

Welcome to the Women in Business DEI Resource Library! Listed below is an archive of books, videos, documentaries, articles, and contacts for our members to learn, engage, and inspire change outside of WIB.

We are aware that the materials listed are by no means exhaustive, and that the intersectional nature of our identities makes looking into specific social identity groups more complex and nuanced than they might seem at first. We encourage you to reflect on your identities and lived experiences while looking through this library.

All of our resources are recommended by our recruited speakers, mentors, and WIB members. If you want to contribute to our database, please fill out this form
