JEDI - Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Chair- Brandy Brown (acting chair)

Member Liaison- Alicia McConkey

The NASW ME Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) Committee mission is to advocate for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion within our Chapter, our profession, our workplaces, schools of social work, and our communities. Social Workers have an ethical responsibility to advocate for social justice, educate ourselves, demonstrate awareness and cultural humility, and demonstrate understanding of the nature of social diversity and oppression with respect to race, ethnicity, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, political belief, religion, immigration status, socioeconomic status, mental or physical ability, and other hyphenated identities. The JEDI Committee meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 8-9am on Zoom.
