Whether you’ve just begun thinking about crafting a DEIJ strategy or are well into implementing a company program, people want to see the progress, the results. Quite often this comes in terms of numerical reports; reaching benchmarks that don’t center those most impacted to truly get a sense of who and how we are receiving the benefit; who is being harmed and how we can mitigate this; and ultimately, how we can measure the shift of power at our organizations to be more equitable.
We will walk through a justice-centered framework for creating accountability measures for equitable cultural change and you’ll have the opportunity to practice creating justice-centered metrics for one of your organizational goals.
• Reimagine what success and impact means at your organization through measuring equity and justice
• Identify key questions and considerations for creating justice-centered measures of accountability
• Apply a justice-centered approach to create new measures of accountability for one of your own goals
