How to share feedback and get involved at IJ!
We hope that everyone will take the opportunity to provide input through the many opportunities that arise during the regular course of work at IJ. For example, input is solicited and expected during team meetings and gatherings. Myriad other gatherings, whether formal or informal, and just bumping into other people in the office, provide an opportunity for input. In addition, these are some specific channels that can be used.
Engagement Advisory Council (EAC)
The EAC is one avenue through which staff can share their perspectives and provide input for organizational decision-making. The EAC is an elected group of representatives from all non-leadership levels and from each division, that acts as a voice on behalf of staff and meets quarterly with the Executive Team (ET) or the full Leadership Team (LT). For more information about the group itself, you can read the full charter here.
You are welcome and encouraged to reach out to your EAC representative at any time! You should already be added to the Google Space for any EAC group you are a part of, and there are email distribution lists for each EAC group as well, listed below:
Distribution Lists (emails sent here will go to all of the people in each constituent group):
firstname.lastname@example.org (Levels 1-3, EAC rep Rabia)
impactjustice.org (Dreambuilders & RAC, EAC rep Brandon)
email@example.com (PRC, EAC rep Talia)
firstname.lastname@example.org (At Large, EAC rep Teresa G.)
And, if you want to email the full EAC, you can reach them at EAC@impactjustice.org.
Through Your Supervisor
Your supervisor is your first stop for any questions or input you have related to IJ, your team, and your role. You can contact your supervisor at any time, but IJ also provides several specific channels:
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
ERGs provide an organizationally-supported space and place for people of similar backgrounds to come together for support and community building. These groups are staff-led, and are not IJ sponsored.
The existing ERGs at Impact Justice can be found here: Current ERG List.
If you’d like to form a new ERG, please take a look at the Employee Resource Groups Policy for how to do so!
With the People Team
You can always get in touch with the People team by emailing email@example.com. Use this email for all HR inquiries and concerns unless you need to speak directly to a member of the People Team regarding a specific issue — it will be routed to the right person. All emails are answered within 48 hours.
