IRNA welcomes any and all complaints, feedback, or concerns and will take action when it is within the domain of the organization to do so. For issues outside of the domain of the organization, IRNA will direct the complainant to the proper organization or authority and make our best effort to help facilitate a resolution.
Imago Relationships North America (IRNA), as an organization, consciously commits to increasing awareness and understanding for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) within our organization. We will continually review policies, behaviors, actions, and programs and work to ensure we are aware, culturally proficient, and antiracist. We commit to providing platforms for ongoing education and reflection for our members’ growth and deeper understanding. As an organization, we recognize the lasting impact of historic transgenerational injustices and choose to align with sustainable transformation and pledge to be accountable for doing the work toward an equitable and just future. IRNA welcomes and aims to be enriched by all people and cultures.
If there is any barrier to your joining or participating in IRNA or its events, we will do our best to help. Please send us an email...we want to hear from you!
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
The JEDI Circle hosted a Community Meeting in June 2022 where DEI auditor, Jessy Molina, presented her findings and recommendations from the audit. Below you will find links to both the audit report and a recording of the meeting.
In October 2022 a group of dedicated Imago Professionals met for a 2-day intensive Strategy Session to create an action plan for implementing the recommendations that came out of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion audit. Watch this information-packed video to hear about the results of that session.
Scholarship opportunities for individuals identifying as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) Imago Advanced Training in North America.
Please note: As of April 17, 2023 we are unable to accept applications for Imago Clinical and Imago Professional Facilitator Training, pending further funding for our scholarship program.
In an effort to increase accessibility, inclusion and diversity in Imago, Imago Relationships Worldwide (IRW) has a number of scholarship opportunities available for Imago Training anywhere in the world.
"We want a culture that is inclusive of everyone and where everyone who joins feels they have the opportunities to succeed and grow."
