JEDI – Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion
In 2020, ReVision Energy Co-Owners formed Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) to recognize the intersectional relationship between environmentalism and social justice, and to highlight the work that needs to be done in the clean energy industry and beyond. We will use JEDI to amplify the voices of underrepresented groups to educate and lead, both within ReVision Energy and with our customers and communities. Under the values of ReVision Energy, JEDI members will actively promote and participate in an inclusive mindset to ensure a more equitable future.
JEDI consists of five internal committees who are focused on various areas of this work. The goals of our JEDI committees are closely aligned with ReVision’s overarching mission, and reflect our dedication to build a better future by alleviating environmental and social injustices.
Advocacy & Partnerships
Our Advocacy and Partnership Group’s goal is to complement and enhance ReVision Energy’s environmental mission and policy work through direct action for racial and social justice. We do this by developing partnerships, advocating for policies, directing resources, and mobilizing co-owners and our community in support of racial justice and equity. You can learn more about our initiatives and state specific resources on our Act for Justice page.
Education & Training
Our Education and Training Group is focused on personal and community growth within the company. Our goal is to educate and empower our employees and greater community in JEDI principles, similar to our commitment to ESOP and B-Corp certification, through internal training, discussions, and external initiatives. We are committed to centering BIPOC voices in formal and informal training/education at ReVision.
Our Access to Solar Group’s mission is to develop and implement projects that mobilize ReVision Energy resources to expand our operations to communities of color, indigenous communities, and other underserved populations who have been disproportionately disadvantaged by the fossil fuel based economy.
Retention & Mentorship
Within ReVision, our mission is to develop internal teams that provide additional, unique support for minority groups within our company. Our first team is Alectrona, whose focus is to create a safe and productive space for all who identify as woman, womxn, transgender, and nonbinary. We aim to support, retain, grow, train, diversify, and challenge ourselves to be heard and represented equally within our company, industry, and greater society.
Culture & Talent Development
The Talent and Culture Development pillar will hold ReVision Energy accountable to its mission to create a workforce that is welcoming, diverse, and inclusive. Our most important group of solar champions – our employee-owners – will represent a diverse set of backgrounds, interests, and identities, united in our mission to build a zero carbon society. We are deconstructing the unconscious and systematic biases that exist in recruitment and hiring systems and will provide resources for those who have not historically seen themselves in trades and technical careers to feel seen and welcomed.
