Diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) have never been so important in internal communications and yet many feel inadequately prepared. In this guide, the authors combine their expert knowledge to provide a practical approach to bridge this skills and knowledge gap for Internal Communicators.
Navigating DEI language can be difficult, but Building a Culture of Inclusivity will help Internal Communicators and business leaders engage employees in driving culture change to ensure everyone feels valued and like they belong. This book covers key points to achieve this such as how to offer tangible change consistently throughout the year and what techniques you will need to deploy to avoid inauthenticity. It also explains how to identify and move away from performative tokenistic actions and biases to help develop tangible deliverables that help every colleague in their organization feel included.
This book offers support for conversations with leaders to help them progress the diversity agenda and understand the importance of cultivating a culture of inclusivity across their workforce through their internal communications. Inherently practical, Building a Culture of Inclusivity provides case studies of exemplar DEI communications, exercises for self-assessment and templates to complete to identify goals and strategy. Written by two experienced Internal Communicators, this book will help you understand how to construct and sustain an inclusive workplace where everyone feels included.
