Awakening the J.E.D.I. within

 Listen to the podcast version of this post 

Each Friday's podcasts are always under 10 minutes.

My wife Carol and I marched in the #EnoughIsEnough #March4Justice march recently.

We were inspired and left with a feeling that this issue of how women are seen and treated, will rightly not go away, and that lasting change is inevitable.

Our governments continued weak response to this has emboldened people even more.

Ever since I’ve been researching and contemplating how I can more practically help my clients in #eliminatinginjustice by better addressing inequality.

One answer has emerged J.E.D.I. Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

I came across this initially through watching this presentation by Aaron Dignan for Teal Around The World. I love Aaron’s book 'Brave New Work' which is on my top 21 business books recommended reading list as is Frederic Laloux’s 'Reinventing Organisations' which first introduced the concept of Teal organisations. 

In Aaron’s The Ready organisation J.E.D.I. is one of five principles that govern them. The others are transparency, autonomy, consent, and decentralisation.

As an aside, yet integral, is that the concept of Teal has heavily influenced my work including my new business logo and associated services.

There are many things that Teal organisations have in common. One of them it seems is that they are embracing J.E.D.I. Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
