ACM | JEDI
justice, equity, diversity, inclusion
what is JEDI?
JEDI is an initiative that aims to make ACM's culture and presence on campus more inclusive. It was proposed through the Moonshots initiative and was first run during Fall 2020. We aim to prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion within our committees by identifying and addressing areas of improvement in terms of inclusion, as well as better including all minoritized and marginalized groups in tech.
So far, we've worked with each committee to reach specific EDI goals within ACM - read more about our achievements in this blog post. We also hold allyship spaces on various EDI topics (not always related to tech) such as queer and trans representation in computer science and Asian representation and the otherization of kpop.
how can I get involved?
If you're interested in ACM's diversity and inclusion goals, reach out to any of our JEDIs on Slack or shoot an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)! Being a JEDI isn't a big commitment--you can get involved with anything, be it programming, one-off events, or anything else. You can also sign up to hold an allyship space on any EDI-related topic! If you're not interested in getting involved but have any quick suggestions or questions, feel free to contact us as well :)get involved!
