Hi from Pennsylvania!
Good Afternoon Everyone.

FYI, we are seeing the presenter screen so it's a little small
Could you add me as a presentor?
Will materials be included to download or emailed later?
Note: There are no slides for this presentation.
Woot woot (Lynnae Flora, Jeffco HS in Golden)
I will be sharing resources and a copy of the recording 2-3 weeks from today.
Good to see you here, Natalie, from a fellow Coloradoan - and human services cheerleader
Hello from the South Bronx in NYC
Hello from Rochester NY
Friendly reminder: This is a panel format session. There are no slides. I will be sharing resources provided by our panelists, as well as this recording, to everyone registered for this session within 2-3 weeks. Thank you!
Communication needs to be transparent to all the resources available to the people in our community and staff at the organizations
How do we engage many people who feel that development o DEI and racial justice will affect their privileges/and or their "heritage"?
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Offer many types of events and opportunities for staff to learn and engage
yes! get on board!
Thank you Natalie!
That's for sure!
Bringing some people up does not mean you're trying to bring others down.
What if the committee is merely a façade?
Amy Soud, she/her/ella
@Anna, YES same questions; if committee's are established more "for show"
Or that it’s a one foot in, one foot out commitment that shifts and wanes based on personal agendas or relationships
Natalie, I love your tactic of getting the stuck folks who are resistant to move along by sharing the data with them and asking "Are you ok with this?!?"
I think its important too to make sure age, ability, orientation, socio-economic, etc are included under the DEI umbrella
Champions can also act as amazing recruiters to increase DEI engagement
Leaders should be able to mentor those talented employees and provide opportunity to grow.
@Adriana I agree!
Thank you, Kevin.
Along with professional development, agencies need to also evaluate and make changes to policies, procedures, assessment tools, forms etc. to ensure these tools the professionals use in their everyday practice are consistent with and support EDI practices.
Amy Soud, she/her/ella
Yes, and I think it's valuable to actually list these areas (age, ability, etc) on documents to ensure folks understand they're under the umbrella of this work (literally down to a terminology point).
I am at Nichole's organization and as the panel was talking, I have a greater lens of how well our organization (and state) is doing with moving this work forward.
agreed @Nichole Ossa especially on the Ableism and for those who are differently abled
Is that training available to be shared?
Nichole, might you be willing to share the curriculum?
You can do it Eddy!
Yes, Nichole would love to see an example
The orientation also connects new hires early on in their onboarding experience to employee-led ERG/BRG groups so they have access to psychologically safe spaces to build community with others.
Context of the data is key
We just developed such a network in NYS Office of Children and family Services under the name Policy Review and Data Analysis sub-committee to help develop policies of DEI in NYS agencies.
That's right, we need to understand the stories behind the numbers!
We also need to examine data for bias. We need to bring a critical eye to make sure that the data is accurate and inclusive.
People interested in a deeper dive in equitable data collection might be interested in We All Count - https://weallcount.com/
Oo thanks Bonnie.
@pamela, yes for the quantitative data but if we are asking for qualitative data, we have to take it as face value, even if it doesn't match our assumptions.
This is a great resource. As a trainer, thank you!!
SMILE...no "toolkit" Natalie but I understand
I'm wondering if there's a way to standardize the terms DEI/RDI and other concepts so it could be easily recognized nationally?
LOL...ya'll are funny....get those packets out!
