The fight against systemic discrimination and the commitment to advance justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) across postsecondary institutions has translated in increased requests for demographic information about students, faculty, and staff. Practitioners must grapple with this challenge and search for ways to reconcile formal approaches to data collection and analysis with an evolving understanding of the needs to support JEDI and fluidity in definitions, terminology, and context. During this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to learn important concepts that are central to JEDI as well as guiding principles to JEDI data collection, as we share lessons learned from our work in this area. Since learning and integrating JEDI into our day to day lives is a personal journey, enriched by shared experiences and collaboration, the topic will be discussed using a participative and reflective approach.
