Abstract

This paper asks, what significance do diversity committee meetings have for how diversity workers experience, make sense of, and navigate the challenges of diversity work at a large, public research university? Drawing on a sixteen‐month ethnography of diversity policy and practice, I analyze the practice of “preaching to the choir” among committee members and explore the different affective attachments that form between diversity workers, their works, and the objects of diversity interventions.
