How about these for a couple of strategies?

It's kind of intimidating rocking up to a meeting where you don't know what happens and you don't know anyone. Even more so if you turn up and find you're the only woman in the room. If you have nominated people to perform the function of 'welcomers' they can make a point to take responsibility to engage with new arrivals and make sure they settle in ok.
