Justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion: Making progress and measuring results

What does justice look like in your organization and in your work? How do you advance equity in your non-profit? What does success look like?

This week, Dr Kimberly Truong joined us to talk about the work of advancing equity in a non-profit. Dr Truong is the Executive Director of the Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Office at the MGH Institute of Health Professions and also Founder and Principal at XEM Consulting Services, LLC, where she supports individuals and organizations to engage in transformational institutional change.

She showed us how her organization has gone from lagging to leading in embedding justice and equity in their organization. Watch as she shows us:

  • Concrete steps for implementing a JEDI plan
  • Why JEDI is not an HR function, and
  • How to know you’re making progress

About Pieta Blakely

I help mission-based organizations measure their impact so that they can do what they do well. I started my nonprofit career as a teacher in workforce development and adult basic education. It was important work and I was worried that we didn’t really know if we were doing it well. In the process of trying to answer that question, I got a Masters in Education and a PhD in Social Policy, and became an evaluator.
