Is your Organization Communicating Meaningfully about Social Injustice and Diversity?

With crises, upheaval, pain and change happening every day, many individuals and organizations are unsure about the right ways to communicate and the right actions to take about social injustice. And so they wait, reluctant to say the wrong words or take the wrong steps.

But action is needed to effect positive change, to contribute to making our global community healthier, safer, fairer, kinder.

  • Assess the situation before acting
  • Generate change by coupling words with a plan
  • Say something meaningful
