Updated ASAP Professional Guidance Resources better integrate justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion concepts and language

Updated versions of the ASAP Code of Conduct and Professional Ethics, Living Guide to the Principles of Climate Change Adaptation, and ASAP Professional Guidance Resources Glossary are now available in the ASAP Resource Library! Key changes include:

  • Revised language in the Code of Ethics and Living Guide to reflect concepts and language used in the ASAP JEDI statement and to embrace asset-based framing.
  • Reorganized sections in the Code of Ethics to reflect order of priority for ASAP members.
  • Enhanced complimentary of Code of Ethics and Living Guide by matching language and streamlining how Values and Beliefs are presented.

“The prioritization and integration of JEDI is a process – a process that needs to inform all aspects of an organization: its structure, policies, programs, and more. Updating ASAP’s Code of Conduct and Professional Ethics and Living Guide to the Principles of Climate Change Adaptation is an essential step in ASAP’s journey to live and breathe our values.” 
— Julia Kim, ASAP Board Member and ASAP JEDI Committee Leadership Team Member.
