Skillcrush Student JEDI Committee
What Is JEDI?
Justice – Dismantling barriers to resources and opportunities in society so that all individuals and communities can live a full and dignified life.
Equity – Allocating resources to ensure everyone has access to the same opportunities. Equity recognizes that advantages and barriers —the ‘isms’— exist.
Diversity – All the differences between us based on which we experience advantages or encounter barriers to opportunities. Diversity isn’t just about racial differences.
Inclusion – Fostering a sense of belonging by centering, valuing, and amplifying the voices, perspectives and styles of those who experience more barriers based on their identities.
