When it comes to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI), it is one thing to believe in the concept and quite another to embody the principles and practices. When your organization commits to workplace equity, you want the commitment to be sustainable, adopted at all levels, and to carry on in perpetuity.
With organizational transformation, we focus on assessment, strategy, goals, and change in a multi-dimensional fashion to achieve those long-lasting results. Specifically, organizational transformation requires examination of structures, systems, policies, procedures, practices, and people in order to foster a JEDI culture and embed equity as a way of doing business.
Training provides a foundational understanding of concepts, language, histories, and practices related to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI). Training is NOT a substitute for organizational transformation, but it is a good way to gain understanding about what Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are, how they differ, and the characteristics of workplace equity and presents strategies for undoing inequity. Training provides opportunities for reflection and learning, and provides some guiding pillars to help guide transformation, but it does not actually bring about transformation on its own.
Sample trainings include:
- The Value of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
- The Foundations of Structural Oppression
- The Characteristics & Manifestations of White Supremacy Culture
- Recognizing & Responding to Identity-Based Harm
- Identity Based Harm in Education
- Identity Based Harm in Policing
- Identity Based Harm in Child Welfare
- Identity Based Harm in Corrections
- Trauma Informed Care
- Racial Trauma in Adolescents
- Understanding Gender Identity
- What is Restorative Justice?
- Self-Care for BIPOC in the Workplace
Mentoring & Leadership Coaching
Mentoring is an opportunity to learn from someone who has relevant experience that can help someone grow and develop. In the JEDI realm, mentoring often involves supporting people in marginalized positions as they navigate the majority-dominant workplace (e.g. supporting a person of color in a white-dominant workplace), or it can involve working with someone who has recently taken on a JEDI leadership role who wants support as they develop.
Coaching is an opportunity to explore and develop an individual’s professional leadership skills and goals in JEDI, but we also provide leadership coaching for other leadership skills and qualities as well.
Mentoring and coaching can take place over a few sessions or a few years, depending on your identified needs.

Restorative Justice is an indigenous practice most often associated with the Maori of New Zealand. It has evolved in communities and organizations as a person-centered, structured opportunity to promote healing in the process of repairing harm. Whether it is in the workplace, school, or criminal justice system, we can facilitate restorative justice processes to support fair and equitable resolution of difficult situations.
Sample situations where restorative justice can be used:
- Repair harm in schools
- Address family issues in child welfare
- Create healing and reparation in criminal cases
- Resolve conflict between staff
- Navigate a decision-making on a contentious topic
Whether your organization has been doing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) work all along, whether you are new to the ideas, or you haven’t yet begun your journey, situations can arise that require a JEDI-responsive approach. Incident Consultation is for those who are dealing with identity-based equity* situations and want support and advice in navigating toward successful, person-centered resolution. It is short-term consulting designed to support fair and equitable processes and outcomes for all involved.
