The Communications Network began this project in 2018 to learn how to best promote and advance equity communications practices for leaders working in communications for good. Recognizing there are many facets of equity, we decided the exclusive focus of this project would be race. This decision reflects what we believed was the steepest climb for communicators in the social sector, and for the audiences we engage.
This project has resulted in a digital tool that offers actionable advice, In Real Life from communicators doing racial equity work in the field, and a host of resources to further learning. It is designed as a tool that will continue to evolve and inform our approach to racial equity as communicators.
