JEDI (Justice, equity, diversity, inclusion) is not just about race, is not just about who we serve, it is about all of us as fundraising staff, as vendors, as volunteers, and as donors. This session will explore key themes of activation for organizations and event leaders to own in their own organizational JEDI journey.

Using the JEDI model implemented by Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America, Deb will take the attendees through the strategies and practical approaches used by BBBS. This session is a MUST SEE for any fundraiser looking to explore, learn, or implement inclusion practices into their organization and fundraising.

Key Takeaways:

  • Actionable steps to begin your own JEDI-focused initiatives.
  • Understand JEDI and your personal role in the work.
  • Real examples of tactical actions a group can take now.
