JEDI Informed Facilitation
March 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$25.00
Meetings are places where our commitments to justice, equity, and inclusion are tested by how well our meetings are designed, how well we can balance participation, and how well we can facilitate group dynamics.
Inclusive facilitators need to bring JEDI skills into two phases of a meeting:
- Phase One: the planning phase of the meeting where the inclusion and equity considerations must be identified and designed for as you build the meeting’s agenda.
- Phase Two: this is the live meeting where people convene and the group’s interpersonal dynamics, power dynamics, and potential inequities require facilitators to use all their skills to foster inclusion and help groups do their best.
At the end of the training, participants will:
- Discover techniques to integrate the CCALAC Member Code of Conduct while facilitating live meetings.
- Explore how the Code of Conduct can help create inclusive meeting spaces.
- Learn JEDI-based facilitation best practices to promote equitable participant engagement in meetings.

Chrysta Wilson has spent the last 22 years supporting efforts that advance equity and justice in communities across the United States. This work is a calling: it was born from the stories her parents told her about their growing up during legalized segregation in “Jim Crow” North Carolina. It was born from her own navigation of covert and overt racism and classism that she experienced in her childhood growing up in the same region. Ultimately, she is committed to supporting people, organizations, and institutions in their transformations so they are better positioned to accomplish their vision connected to equity, liberation, and justice. In 2018, Chrysta started talking more openly about her analysis and understanding that social change and social justice cannot be achieved without naming how the belief of White Supremacy (and the resulting systemic racism) has shaped the systems and institutions within the United States that have created the disparities that the entire Nonprofit, Philanthropic, and Public Sector is organized to address. Chrysta has served as a coach, evaluator, community builder, strategist, storyteller and facilitator to help those committed to changing the world do so more effectively. She loves helping others plan for results, design strategies, evaluate their impact, tell their stories, and ultimately co-create the world we want to live in. Chrysta loves helping people connect to their purpose, maximize their impact, minimize burnout, and find joy and hope along the road toward justice. Through coaching she creates supportive and reflective spaces where humanity is nurtured, imagination is sparked, dreams are born, and recipes for individual and organizational transformation are developed. Chrysta has a Masters of Public Administration with a focus in organizational and community development, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Public Policy, both from the University of Southern California. She also an International Coach Federation (ICF) Certified Professional Coach holding an Associate Certified Coach Credential.
