Whenever I’m at a conference’s diversity panel, I can’t help but feel we’re sitting here begging to be included. The power dynamic is already against us, and it’s tiring always having to make arguments from a position of perceived inferiority.

@laura you are begging to be included. If your position is based upon "race" or "gender" then that position is inheritly filled in a discrimator way. A diversity panel implies that the group that needs it (the panel) is exclusionary based on "race" or "gender", your existence as a panel is percieved as an insult to those you sit over/with whatever.
