SoM Staff JEDI Collective

The School of Medicine Staff JEDI Collective brings together representatives from across the School to connect central and local efforts around justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI). The group is led by the HRG JEDI team and the direction of the group is co-created across the membership.

Members attend monthly meetings, engage with each other via a Slack channel, mailing list, and community building opportunities, and connect the collective’s efforts to their DFA and departmental DEI committee. Currently, the collective has identified five priority areas within organizational change for JEDI to begin its efforts as subgroups, which are supported by the HRG JEDI team

These subgroups are formed around the employee experience: Employee Education and Advancement; (Inter)departmental Collaboration; and Resource Guide Implementation, Adoption, and Metrics.

Resource Guides

The SoM Staff JEDI Collective created 15 resource guides to embed leading JEDI practices into employee experience resources. These resource guides were generated by members of each subgroup. Overall, each guide seeks to better embed JEDI strategy into personal interactions, organizational structures, and daily practices, thus fostering cultural transformation.

Open each accordion tab to download its respective guide. Please note that each guide is a large file and may take several minutes to download.
