JEDI Journey

Your Journey to Justice. Equity. Diversity. Inclusion.

Every JEDI journey is unique because we have all traveled a different road to get here—we have had different experiences, live in different bodies, and learned different stories about who we are in relationship to the world around us.

The power of this journey begins with noticing and appreciating these differences—in ourselves and in others.

Justice examines the policies, procedures, practices, mores, and norms that influence the distribution of resources.

A JUST world has equitable and sustainable distribution of resources, and all members are physically and psychologically safe, secure, recognized, and treated with respect.

Diversity is not just race, but the core of identities that have social capital: ability, age, class, gender, race, and other social identities represented in communities, institutions, cultures, and society.

Diversity speaks to those aspects that are largely unchangeable and not contingent on behavior, but on sense of self.

Equity is the process that levels the playing field, bringing balance of opportunity where negative impact is not tied to identity.

Equity is the scale that examines how things operate and impact groups. Equity takes action to adjust to ensure mutual opportunity for all people.

Inclusion is practices, policies, procedures, and actions that provide equal access to opportunities and resources to people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized. Everyone is valued for their contributions.

Inclusion is like the platinum rule: “Do unto others as they would do for themselves.”

Your JEDI Journey Tools

We designed these JEDI Journey Tools with family, friends, colleagues, and YOU in mind. Our hope is for these tools to help you and those that you connect with, such as friends, family, and colleagues to start or continue your journey to a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive world. 

Whether it’s at home or at work, JEDI journey can feel like a heavy lift and a challenging undertaking to do. We imagined these tools as part of your JEDI journey that you can take anywhere with you and can help make your journey easier, and even enjoyable. Are you ready to begin your JEDI journey?
