EnCorps staff, with the support of our Executive Director, established the JEDI Working Group in June 2020 after the recurring unconscionable attacks amidst a pandemic that disproportionately impacted Black and Brown communities.
The JEDI Working Group isn’t a separate entity within EnCorps. A representative from each functional area is part of JEDI in order to inform decisions across the organization, from program development, tracking of impact data to hiring practices.
For EnCorps, words are not enough. We commit to:
- Evaluate the impact of our programs
- Understand the needs of students in under-resourced communities
- Identify how we can do better
We are committed to living by our beliefs and we know that the work of the JEDI Working Group will never be done. Please take a moment to review the Why of the JEDI Working Group, learn what Actions we’ve taken and what Goals we have set, as well as the Milestones achieved to date.
