EDI Mindfulness Articles
Mindfulness practice is vital to EDI organizational development because…
- It supports efforts to see situations in and around us more clearly, surfacing unconscious biases, or unexamined assumptions and beliefs
- It is geared to raise awareness and facilitate change through critical inquiry at the individual, institutional, and systemic levels
- It is embedded in tools taught to navigate difficult conversations
- It holds space for racial equity and engages alternative perspectives to the status quo of organizational practices by reevaluating key decision-points of operations and centering the most disproportionately impacted stakeholders to develop strategies for change.
