On this day last year, we brought you a list of videos to boost your diversity and bias-breaking efforts. In this never-ending journey, a good tip has a long lifespan, so here's our list of recommendations again: videos you can watch on International Women's Day (or today) for insights, practical approaches, and outcome-oriented toolkits to help create a gender-balanced workplace.

In this actionable talk, Epler shares three ways to support people who are underrepresented in the workplace. "There's no magic wand for correcting diversity and inclusion," she says.
