J.E.D.I. is Social Work Campaign Launched

October 14, 2021    |  

J.E.D.I is Social Work is an inclusive partnership and campaign among students, faculty, staff, and the community with intentional collaboration around justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. This initiative is aimed at supporting a social work community at the University of Maryland in which all persons are treated equitably while being their authentic selves. J.E.D.I. is Social Work recognizes that Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (J.E.D.I.) are not just a part of the work but rather, it IS the work.

As part of the J.E.D.I. is Social Work campaign, we invite you to sign the J.E.D.I. Pledge to demonstrate your commitment to taking action in cultivating a J.E.D.I. community.

We also invite you to check out J.E.D.I. Poster Series which reminds us of our equity and social work values and invites us to work toward the community we all aspire be a part of.  We will also be posting stories on Facebook, IG and Twitter from students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members about the ways in which they cultivate J.E.D.I. in their roles.
