What are J.E.D.I. Principles?

Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (J.E.D.I.) is a framework that promotes fairness, equal opportunity, and inclusivity. It goes beyond simply acknowledging differences, aiming to address systemic inequalities and create environments where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered.


1. Enhanced Innovation and Performance

Research shows that diverse and inclusive workplaces foster creativity, innovation, and better decision-making. By embracing J.E.D.I. principles, your business can harness the power of diverse perspectives, talents, and experiences to drive innovation and improve overall performance.


2. Access to Broader Talent Pool

Building a diverse and inclusive workplace helps attract a wider range of candidates when recruiting. By actively seeking diversity, you open your doors to individuals from different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences, allowing you to tap into a diverse talent pool and access unique skills and perspectives.


3. Increased Employee Engagement and Retention

A workplace that values justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion fosters a sense of belonging and respect among employees. When individuals feel valued and appreciated for their unique contributions, they are more likely to be engaged and motivated. Additionally, a strong J.E.D.I. culture can contribute to higher employee retention rates, reducing turnover costs and ensuring continuity within your business.


4. Enhanced Reputation and Client Loyalty

In today's socially conscious landscape, customers and clients are increasingly seeking businesses that align with their values. By prioritizing J.E.D.I., you position your business as a responsible and inclusive organization, strengthening your reputation and boosting customer loyalty.


5. Positive Social Impact

Embracing J.E.D.I. principles goes beyond enhancing your business's bottom line. It is a way to contribute to positive social change by addressing systemic inequalities and creating more equitable opportunities for all individuals. By promoting social justice and inclusivity, your business can play a crucial role in building a better and fairer society.

JEDI in Conservation Planning Workshop

This workshop or presentation will take the information and lessons learned from the LCS's work (here) and incorporate them to propel your organization into a process to effectively incorporate JEDI into the Conservation Planning Process. This ensures that the JEDI work keeps momentum, and staff can see the J.E.D.I. commitments incorporated into organizational structure.

Building and Sustaining Trust Workshop

With staff, LCS will help identify possible actions that your organization can take to increase and sustain trust. This will be based on LCS's extensive background and research into the social science of the connection between trust and conservation success. We will be utilizing a framework created by Professor Marc Stern called The Trust Ecology.

Listen, Empower, Transform Workshop

We will look at the science of how to effectively listen to communities that have been marginalized, empower local collaborators, and transform the relationship between conservation groups and communities away from transaction and towards relational. This powerful workshop will give you the tools you need to effectively take your J.E.D.I. learning and apply them in a way that will transform how conservation gets done at scale.
