Everything we do starts with justice. Without it, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives appear equitable without actually working to dismantle the harmful power dynamics inherent in traditional philanthropy. Our commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) is a commitment to action and accountability that helps shift resources and power to community leaders and organizations that have been historically denied both.
Our JEDI Commitment
JEDI is a journey, not a destination. Our commitment is to continue to develop partnerships through which we can shift and strengthen the power of communities historically denied power and direct the resources they need to make sustainable systems change a reality.
What does this look like in practice? Championing social justice philanthropy, mobilizing resources to support leaders positioned to serve communities historically denied power, supporting community-centered change, and working to develop clear JEDI indicators to hold ourselves accountable.
