JEDI Focus Groups

Register Today and Contribute to a Strategy for Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for the Profession

In October, the CSLA and the provincial, territorial and regional component associations contracted Capillary Consulting to help guide our work to develop a Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion strategy for the profession. To launch that work, Capillary invites all categories of CSLA members (regular, life, associate (intern) and student) to join a conversation to learn about the needs and expectations of the strategy to be developed. These sessions will be offered as 90-minute focus groups led by either Rich Batchelor or Simone Sloane, consultants with Capillary. Several questions will be asked in each group to better understand your experiences and needs.

Two groups of sessions will be held. You can participate by component association, by diversity group, or in both.  If you are unable to participate during any of these time slots but would like to contribute to the discussion, or if have any difficulties registering, please reach out to Rich via email at rich@capillaryconsulting.com
