How to Read a Just Label

What is a Just label? 

A Just label is the end product of an organization’s rigorous self-reflection and transparent reporting process. Organizations submit policies, data, and supporting documentation for a total of 21 Indicators. Each Indicator has four potential levels of performance. The organization’s data and documentation is then reviewed by ILFI’s Just team, and a final label is created. 

What do the squares mean?

Every Indicator will feature four boxes. When filled in blue, these boxes signify the organization's performance level for that particular Indicator. To understand what requirements an organization had to meet within each indicator, please review the Just 3.0 Program Manual. 

Here is a breakdown of what each level encompasses:

  • Level 1 always begins with organizations developing a policy. This focus on policy first is designed to prioritize codifying an organization's commitments to equity, and it also makes participation in Just possible for all organizations. 
  • Levels 2-4 will require policy, data and supporting documentation. These levels represent actions towards embodying equity and justice within each respective Indicator.
  • Level 4 represents the highest level of performance within the Just program. This level indicates that an organization has been able to demonstrate significant action toward “what good looks like” based on our current understanding of justice and equity. 

Note: If an organization is not able to develop and enact a policy to meet an Indicator's Level 1 requirement at the time of submission, the label will display that Indicator with blank boxes, indicating a Level 0 performance.
