OSC JEDI Jumpstart Plus Pathway to Action is for any organization that has a commitment to DEI , culture change and/or JEDI but has not been able to fully operationalize their intention.
Jumpstart Plus uses multiple (2), 1 hour-long meetings with our VP of JEDI and/or another relevant expert(s) to delve deeper into the strategic/logistical/operational side of JEDI commitment planning in order to capitalize on momentum and start implementation planning for a companies commitments.
Individual companies can book 1-3 (multiple session) engagements at a time and purchase as many “seats” as required to ensure that key stakeholders are included in the conversation.
Use cases to get moving with your internal DEI commitments
Example 1: You’ve committed to emphasizing your company’s commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) throughout the employee onboarding process. You know what you’d like to see as a goal but you need guidance on what kind of language to use when you talk about what JEDI means to you; what your organization is currently doing to further its JEDI goals; and what you hope to accomplish in the future.
How do you build a roadmap with measurable objectives that allow you to try various, inputs to ensure employees receive appropriate training when they come on board so they can add to and support the desired business eco-system? What specific structures, processes and inputs need to be changed or managed to successfully optimize the on-boarding experience?
Example 2: You have started the process of forming a JEDI committee and are wondering how to make sure that the “right” folks are included in the process without being extractive and/or expecting more from folks than they are ready or willing to provide in terms of time. Your main objective is to prioritize an inclusive working environment, identify systemic inequities, and ultimately improve the organization’s workplace culture but you also need a structure that accommodates existing staff’s workload, desires, current “emotional lift” and overall equity from a “making sure that everyone has a voice” in building ongoing process and systems.
Example 3: You know that current data shows that having an engaged and empowered team leads to higher retention; more innovation; potentially expanded market share and higher profits. However, you’re not sure how to make the financial case for ensuring that JEDI-specific, culture-change at your organization is a priority for your leadership team (especially producing number that will convince your CFO!)
In each of these scenarios (and many more) OSC JEDI Jumpstart Plus can help design timelines, roadmaps, process development and feedback loops and links to relevant data to make sure you’re able to take action but also ensure that you team is reasonably resourced and collecting data that can help inform ongoing optimization!
