Over the past two years, we have come together as a society to discuss issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).  In these discussions, we have learned that we need to do more to promote research that addresses issues related to discourse processing and DEI.  In this roundtable, young scholars who conduct research that address issues of DEI will briefly discuss their programs of research.  We will then discuss the synergies that exist between their programs of research and research on discourse processes.  We hope to identify new areas of research that can be promoted in keynote addresses, symposia, and invited papers and special issues of Discourse Processes.
