In 2022, we took the monumental step of forming the CPRS Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) counsel, a permanent standing committee approved by the CPRS Board of Directors. The Counsel evolved from the work and value of the JEDI Task Force - a group of individuals who were committed to the advancement of JEDI work within CPRS. It was not created to act as an advisory board, enacting rules and regulations, but rather to assist, build and connect our collective stories.
Our Counsel is made up of 18 counselors representing various locations, job focuses, backgrounds and more. Each Counsel brings with them a unique talent and commitment to advancing this important work.
The CPRS JEDI Counsel is looking forward to engaging and publishing its work, and we hope to see you join us in this journey. If you encounter any questions that our counsels can assist with, please be sure to engage and ask especially through the online community.
