In partnership with the myTRI 2030 Inclusion Council and the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce, Greater Columbia Accountable Community of Health is piloting the JEDI Initiative (Environmental Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion) through the JEDI Survey. The JEDI survey is an organizational assessment that will help measure the level of inclusive activities within Tri-City organizations, and help advance the vision to be a courageously authentic community that embraces its growing diversity.
If your organization is located within Benton and Franklin counties and is interested in taking the assessment, please click on the link below or contact Damia at DSafford@gcach.org. Organizations will be provided an incentive of $100.00 to take the survey which will provide GCACH a baseline for the level of DEI policy adoption within the bi-county region.
The Regional Chamber will honor an individual and a member organization with “Tri-Cities Champion of Diversity Awards” during the third day of the Tri-Cities Diversity Summit on November 17, 2021. The Chamber is asking for help from the community to identify the two most-deserving nominees.
The Tri-Cities Champion of Diversity Awards aim to recognize and commend an individual and a member organization that have demonstrated outstanding achievements and sustained commitment to the pursuit of diversity and inclusion in the community and workplace.
The nomination form and award criteria can be found here. The nomination deadline is Friday, October 22.
