Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Resources

Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Resources

This list of resources is compiled by the JEDI Committee of the CPA Section for Students. These resources include podcasts, social media accounts, online tools, and books that relate to anti-oppressive education. This page will continuously be updated, amended, and added to, with the goal of serving as a JEDI hub for students that evolves as we all continue to learn.

To be competent researchers, clinicians, and teachers in psychology, our work must be anti-oppressive at its core. This list of resources may serve as a source of learning materials for all of us as psychologists and researchers in training. If you have any resources that you would like to share for the website, or would like to just talk about how you can engage in anti-oppressive work as a student, please do not hesitate to reach out to the JEDI Executive at jedi.cpastudentsection@gmail.com or the communications officer at com.cpastudentsection@gmail.com
