The JEDI Vision
To create a space where all New Mexican business owners, regardless of background and affiliation, can comfortably access the resources and services they need to create thriving business and economic mobility.
What is Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and What Does it Look Like in Practice?
Justice: Seeking to remove barriers and inequities that inhibit economic mobility.
Fair treatment of all people in EDD’s programming, resources, incentives, and services to promote equitable opportunities and outcomes for all.
Equity: Providing the level of resources and assistance necessary that give everyone the opportunity to participate from the same starting line.
Acknowledging the challenges, needs, histories, and identities of each individual to whom EDD provides needed assistance and resources to ensure business owners and entrepreneurs have equitable access to opportunities.
Diversity: A culmination of individuals that come from a multitude of identities, including but not limited to age, socioeconomic status, race, gender, location, cultural backgrounds, and more.
Recognizing and acknowledging differences and diverse representation as valued assets is a critical step to increasing equitable economic opportunities.
Inclusion: Honoring the perspective of everyone within our community. Creating a space where people feel welcome and comfortable enough to be part of the creation and implementation of the systems they participate in.
Not limited to diversity and quantitative representation, inclusion involves encouraging authentic and empowered participation by all New Mexicans and deliberately creating space for belonging and full access to opportunities.
