Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) trainer and auditor, Jessy Molina, of Molina Consulting LLC has been working with the Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (JEDI) to conduct an audit of Imago Relationships North America (IRNA). Since January of 2022, Jessy has been conducting interviews with IRNA members and leadership, collecting survey feedback and reviewing IRNA's programs and content with the goal of helping IRNA define guidelines, policies, best practices to ensure justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion are practiced throughout our organization.
The intention of the audit is to help IRNA in our ongoing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work by identifying:
Systemic issues and challenges within IRNA and our field of work
Interpersonal issues and challenges that may embody implicit bias, inequity, and micro-aggressive behavior
Areas where accountability and responsibility are needed to continually build and sustain an equitable and inclusive environment for present and future practitioners and clients of Imago
Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Circle
The JEDI Circle works to influence and make recommendations to ensure the organization is operating through the lens of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion as informed by the DEI audit conducted in early 2022. The circle meets for one hour, weekly on Wednesdays at 2:30 pm Eastern.
Contact Latasha Harrison for more information.
Black, Indigenous, & People of Color (BIPOC) Circle
The BIPOC Circle offers members of IRNA who identify as BIPOC a place to temporarily put down the experience of marginalization and nurture relationships and trust in a space held through shared experience, common understanding, collective wisdom, strength and solidarity, and collective visions of what we can do together. The circle meets for 90 minutes on the second Saturday of each month at 12 pm Eastern.
