As a statewide coalition, Jane Doe Inc. works to create a world with gender equity, racial justice and safety for all.
JDI’s mission is to complement and support the expertise and leadership of our coalition members. We are committed to creating healthy vibrant communities, where violence and abuse of power no longer exist, and gender equity and racial justice is a priority. The JDI staff have developed a statement of our core values – Community, Justice, and Solidarity – that guide our approach to fulfill our mission, engage with our membership and the broader community, and act at all times with respect and integrity.
We seek to change the lens through which our communities view gender-based violence by shining a light on the experiences of survivors and promoting equity and justice for everyone.
We work with both public and private partners to create policy that is responsive to survivors needs, helps expand resources, and promotes prevention strategies.
The JDI Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Programs Compensation & Benefits Survey Analysis ReportOver the past 18 months, JDI partnered with consultants from Change for Good Consulting to survey our members and others in the field in MA about total compensation (salary and benefits) practices. Together, with support from the coalition and our members, we have released this report. It gives an overview of statewide and regional salaries by job title, array of benefits offered to SA/DV staff across the state and uses a racial equity lens to see racial disparities in our work. It also has a list of recommendations that can help make our workplaces more sustainable and move salaries from a surviving wage to a thriving one. Click Here
