The JAX Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council is comprised of employees in various positions and representing departments across all JAX locations. Membership is by application and is updated annually. Council goals are:
Advising Leadership: The JAX DEI Council advises the JAX President/CEO and senior leadership on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion at JAX, identifying barriers that inhibit the full inclusion and advancement of persons from underrepresented and/or underserved populations.
Community Listening: We provide venues for the JAX community to voice their opinions and insight on DEI matters at JAX, creating opportunities for two-way communication via the Council members and the greater JAX community.
Community Engagement: The JAX DEI Council works closely with the JAX DEI team on developing a more engaged and inclusive JAX community.
All JAX locations have local DEI committees that report into the JAX DEI Council. These local committees assist the Council in building inclusion and engagement at the campus level. Remote employees have the option to develop a committee for remote employees or join a campus committee.
