Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI)

EPIC LLC actively pursues anti-oppressive practices. This requires an engaged process of counteracting bias at the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral levels. Prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination (whether conscious or unconscious, intentional or unintentional, ambiguous or ambivalent) degrade the very fabric of our society. EPIC LLC acknowledges our educational, occupational, and governing structures are predicated on methods and policies to build power for some groups at the expense of other groups.

To find healing ground, to pursue justice, and to create more equity and inclusivity, we must move beyond a mere sensitivity or awareness of cultural differences. Instead, we must move toward cultural humility and attunement. Using intentional spaces fostered by empathy and curiosity, together we can embrace the "dialectical tension" of JEDI work: both knowing and not knowing how cultural identities intersect.

To this end, EPIC LLC strives to weave justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion into the fabric of all training and consultation activities. JEDI efforts are seen as a process, not a destination or end point.

This is an ongoing journey, so watch for more information and resources coming soon.
