Communications from a Racial Equity Perspective Based on Best Practices

Due to the health, safety, and equity issues connected to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am only offering virtual sessions at this time. I look forward to being onsite with my clients, but I will do so when the work environment is safe is for every person. I have worked virtually with clients outside of my geographic area for a number of years, so I am positioned to meet you online in this difficult moment.

Language Matters: Communicating About Race EffectivelyLearn how to incorporate a racial analysis into your communications

This virtual session is for policy-focused organizations that have had a prior racial equity learning experience and are ready to revamp their communications practices. All content is customized to your organization’s challenge areas and racial equity goals. Initially designed as a four (4) hour in-person session, I offer this session virtually in two (2-hour) sessions. It includes up to three follow-up sessions, also virtual. The content and components of the virtual service are the same as an in-person delivery.

Session topics include:

-Message frames that center race
-Unpacking unique language challenges
-Creating policy documents that include a racial analysis
-Presenting data from a racial equity perspective in ways that do not reinforce harmful racial stereotypes
