EDI in Action Series

  • Some of us have completed a course, how do we extend the EDI conversation more broadly within the organization?
  • How do establish a base of EDI knowledge and shared language across all employee groups? 
  • We want our EDI committee to focus on strategy, but we also need programming for the organization. 
  • We need a space to talk about EDI issues with our colleagues. 

Do any of these sound familiar? This is what we hear from clients every day, that you are ready to go from episodic to consistent investment in growing your organization's equity, diversity and inclusion knowledge and skills. You want curated conversations led by experts that encourage engagement about contemporary EDI issues, how they impact your organization, and that lay a foundation for personal and organizational action.

The EDI in Series is for you. You can select topics and numbers of sessions to be offered on a schedule of your choice. All sessions are led by DJA facilitators, bringing diverse voices, subject matter expertise, and decades of experience--and customized specifically for your organization's needs. 

95% of participants agree that our facilitators bring out the best in all participants through sharing personal expertise and building collective brave spaces.
