Through a grant from the Community Benefit Giving Office, Cedars-Sinai has been supporting the launch of our new signature initiative called Equity in the C-Suite. Equity in the C-Suite aims to catalyze social change through the development of a validated self-assessment tool that will help organizations measure how inclusive they are. This tool is critical to improving the social sector’s approach to JEDI culture transformation in the field of organizational development and change. Learning For Equity is proud to add this initiative to our Learning for EquityTM suite of curriculum and capacity strengthening services.
Who is eligible to participate?
This initiative is open to individuals that work within entry-level to mid-upper management roles in nonprofit organizations spanning the state of California.
What will the interview look like?
Participants will partake in a 60 minute interview where they will be asked questions related to their experience working within the nonprofit sector as it pertains to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI), as well as successful and unsuccessful stories of JEDI principles at play within the workplace. All data collected during the interview will be confidential and any identifiable data will be transformed into generic anonymous identifiers.
