Justice, Equity,
Diversity and


The world is urgently calling for leadership in the areas of JEDI- justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. We know that real change goes beyond box checking and disconnected workshops. And, we know that diverse teams perform better, make better decisions, are more profitable, provide critical and valuable insights, retain staff, and get more done. So DoGoodery does diversity differently!

Our JEDI practice is led by Candice Dickens-Russell, who offers expertise in organizational development and transformational leadership for organizations wishing to understand and improve equitable practices, develop sound policies, and create authentic alignment between their values and their actions. As DoGoodery’s JEDI leader, she develops professional development workshops, strategic plans, and leadership development  in Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. 

How do we do this?

Getting started with diversity can be just as challenging as making long term changes. In combination with our standard and custom JEDI workshops, DoGoodery commits certified diversity and inclusion advisors to guide your organization in creating and mobilizing an action committee.  We help you think through the equity implications of your work and think about how to design for the margins. How do we think about who’s not at the table, who isn’t being heard? 

 At every step of the journey your teams will experience heartfelt coaching dedicated to furthering your mission.

Our Offerings Include but are not limited to:

  • organizational equity assessment and strategic planning of  your organization’s equity policies and practices to determine opportunities for growth. Our 100 + point analysis explores ten distinct areas including hiring and retention, professional development, mission tied messaging, inclusion, and belonging and strategic planning. 

  • multilevel analysis, recommendations, and the develop an equity plan of action. We also offer incremental implementation guidance, and staff professional development through interactive custom designed workshops that will develop a shared language and goals for your team, and build alignment between your values and your actions.

  • creating your organization’s own unique equity statement, that aligns with your mission and vision and sets the foundation for your equity practice. 

We also offer a number of JEDI workshops, but we do them the DoGoodery way! Our workshops are customized to fit your unique needs and our goal is your success. These are not  talk and drop workshops! With our special DoGoodery guidance, we will coach your team through assembling your in-house action committee from the very beginning and are here post-workshop to help you with any questions that arise once you delve into the work.
