CETE developed the Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) Movement to increase our efforts in workforce development, education, and family and community engagement toward the pursuit of a holistic approach to equity, social justice, and inclusion.
About the REDI Movement
The Center on Education and Training for Employment (CETE) is committed to taking the center’s passion and expertise beyond our statement to stand against racism.
CETE developed the Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) Initiative in the summer of 2020 to increase our efforts in workforce development, education, and family and community engagement toward the pursuit of a holistic approach to equity, social justice, and inclusion.
REDI has since evolved from an Initiative to a Movement, with CETE associates engaged in collective efforts towards:
- Increasing members of the CETE community’s knowledge and skills relevant to the posture and practice of cultural humility
- Identifying and establishing anti-racist norms, practices, and policies at CETE
- Contributing to the dismantling of institutional racism within CETE’s spheres of influence
REDI encompasses four different levels of action, including Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Institutional, and Societal. Each level has a specific set of activities associates engage with, ranging from professional development workshops, to White/Black/Person of Color affinity and multi-racial reflection groups, and a Steering Team responsible for on-going development and management of REDI, utilizing a problem-solving process drawing on CETE’s translational research model.
Following is CETE’s framework for engaging in action through the Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Institutional, and Societal levels.
