Our committees are actively working to promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) principles in statistics and data science.
The Awards Committee is focused on diversifying nominations for the American Statistical Association’s (ASA) Fellows Award as well as other awards for statisticians within and outside of the ASA.
The Communications Committee manages the JEDI Outreach Group social media channels and website, advertises JEDI-related events and opportunities, and coordinates the JEDI Corner in Amstat News (Link to JEDI Corner archives).
The Liaison Committee collaborates with other organizations within and outside of the ASA to develop and maintain best practices for JEDI in our scientific communities.
The Professional Development Committee provides opportunities for members to learn about JEDI-related issues and how to develop communities that are just, equitable, diverse and inclusive.
The Program Committee develops and contributes programming that promotes a just, equitable, diverse and inclusive statistics community and addresses areas of statistical study that face JEDI-related implications. This committee will work to incorporate and/or sponsor JEDI-related programming in statistical conferences.
The Students and Young Professionals Committee provides an opportunity for students and young professionals (within five years of their highest degree) to gather and convene to discuss their JEDI-related experiences and concerns. This committee can further pass along ideas and collaborate with the other JEDI Outreach Group committees to publicize and address their related concerns and interests.
