J.E.D.I. stands for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion, and this training will help you move beyond the basics and expand your understanding of what these words mean and how they impact and affect your workplace. The training will provide vocabulary, new tools and best practices for making JEDI a part of your work and personal life, and specific ideas for implementing JEDI in the natural products industry.

Together we will learn new vocabulary and tools for furthering liberation and ending oppression. We will explore intersectionality, consent culture, and best practices for creating a welcoming, respectful, communicative workplace. We will dive into topics including gender, race, and identity. This training will be engaging and uplifting.

“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” Angela Davis Participants will gain skills to unlearn white supremacy, address systemic oppression, and commit to fully believing and acting that Black Lives Matter. This training will focus on the lived experience of Black people in the US while giving tools to understand how racism has harmed all of us from every racial background and how together we can shift this system. This training will also specifically cover addressing racism in the workplace and creating an environment where everyone can thrive.

About Community of Practice Sessions (CiPs)
CiPs provide a unique opportunity for OSC members to dive deeper into the work of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. In small facilitated group time, we will build on the trainings, increasing knowledge, and giving an opportunity for practicing real scenarios. The community of practice happens in small teams between trainings and is facilitated by Shine Diversity staff over zoom. The community of practice will include reading assignments, listening circles, communication skills, team and trust building, and advance skill building.
