How Can Departments Work to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Physics Community?

Departments represent the single most pivotal factor in attempts to make the community of physics more welcoming to under-represented groups. It is here that new students are recruited and educated to be physicists, that new faculty are nutured and challenged, that what is "expected" of a physicist is refined and shaped. But departments generally are still learning to navigate through the complex interactions of this phase transition.
