JEDI Certificate Program: Orientation
Program Orientation Information
A program calendar is available at the bottom of this page that outlines the workshop titles, learning objectives, and timeframe.
As part of your orientation into the program, complete the following items:
1) Select your team members (Team Lead)
Select 3-5 team members from your organization who will participate in all workshops and engage in the workshop content and activities. Consider selecting leaders in your organization who can influence policies and procedures (e.g., Clinical Leads, HR, Operations, Diversity Officer).
2) Schedule your workshop meetings (Team Lead)
As you can see from the program calendar available at the bottom of this page, we will release two workshops per month from January - April 2023 (starting on January 9th) to give you time to assemble your team and schedule your team meetings. Each workshop will take about 1.5 hours to review as a team. All program content is provided in an asynchronous format, so the 1.5 hour meetings can be scheduled at times that work best for your team. We anticipate you will complete the content for each workshop within your 90-minute meeting time.
Note that there will be 2 live sessions with our implementation expert (one at the mid-point and one at the end of the series). Information on scheduling those sessions is forthcoming.
3) Download work plan (Team Lead)
Throughout the program, your team will be filling out a work plan with action steps that will help guide your work well beyond this series. The work plan is available at the bottom of this page. In order to share the workplan with the rest of your team, we recommend saving the work plan to a cloud storage service that your organization utilizes, such as Google Drive, OneDrive, or a shared network drive. Make your team aware of the work plan's file location. Your team will begin filling out the work plan at the end of Workshop 1.
4) Complete the pre-series evaluation (All team members)
As part of your participation in this pilot program, all team members are expected to complete all evaluation activities and provide specific feedback in support of continually improving the Certificate Program. Each workshop will consist of a team evaluation and an individual evaluation. Select the Continue tab in the navigation bar for access to the pre-series evaluation.
5) Submit payment (Team Lead)
After completing the pre-series evaluation, the Team Lead can then submit the program payment of $2,500 through our secure payment gateway. Once the Team Lead submits the payment, all team members will then gain access to the workshop content starting January 9th.
If you have any questions, please contact us by submitting a ticket.
