Workshop for Emerging Leaders of Color
What’s the Game and How Do You Play?
This session is designed to support emerging leaders of color in navigating the higher education landscape and the many “seen and unseen” challenges it poses particularly for people of color who are committed to disrupting inequitable, unjust, and unethical foundations and practics. In this Game, participants will move through and among 4 phases: Recognize, Reclaim, Reinvest, and Revitalize.
Orientation for New Members
This short session is for anyone who has not yet attended an EDJE meeting and would like an overview of our mission and current projects.
Overview of the EDJE Framework
The EDJE Framework in Action
A panel of four people will talk about how their institutions are implementing the EDJE Framework.
This is the central session. The meeting will include time to reflect on the framework, time to develop an action plan for your institution, and a discussion of the future directions of EDJE.
The EDJE framework is largely a reflective tool that helps us identify areas where we are invested in equity and areas where we need more work. But once you have identified areas that need significant attention, what next? Do you have a systematic way of moving practices, policies, and behavior toward more equitable ends? What tools and processes does the team leverage to move from inequitable circumstances to more equitable systems? This session will introduce you to a tool and process for addressing these questions.
Research Directors Meeting
This meeting is for researchers from institutions who have been collecting data on how they have used the EDJE Framework. Come to the meeting to talk about where you are in your research project, especially in light of the changes in our work during COVID. In some cases, we will think together about how to restart our work in the implementation of the framework.
This is a meeting for EDJE Steering Committee members.
