Take Up Space. Take Sides and Repeat: A Quick Guide To Intentional Inclusivity in Communication
Following a year of activism for racial equity and social justice, there is a growing conversation in the business community on the important role companies have in diversity, equity and inclusion. Over the last few years, we’ve seen a slew of public relations disasters from leading corporate brands because diversity was not at the table when decisions were made. While leaning into issues is hard and uncomfortable, leaning in comes with ample opportunities for internal and external communication blunders. Amber Booth-McCoy will discuss how communicators can lead their organizations with genuine, authentic and inclusive communications strategies.
