New CIPR Diversity and Inclusion Network guide on Inclusive Communication
A new guide from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations' (CIPR) Diversity and Inclusion Network on inclusive communication is out today.
The third in a five-part series of guides is designed to improve understanding across the public relations profession of the importance of inclusive communications. It includes best practice on creating, planning, and using inclusive options to achieve this with advice on written communications barriers, using inclusive fonts and design options, and more.
The CIPR’s Diversity and Inclusion Network has published free-to-download guides on EDI Basics and Inclusive Language and will publish the following resources throughout 2023;
- Inclusive Events (September 2023)
- Advocacy and Allyship (December 2023)
The guides have been written by Sara Thornhurst Chart.PR, MCIPR and Vickie Cox MCIPR with input from Avril Lee MCIPR and Cornelius Alexander Dip CIPR, FCIPR, Found. Chart. PR.
Acting and communicating inclusively is not optional, it's imperative. As PR professionals and those responsible for communications in our organisations it is our responsibility to understand and be accepting of disability, and the needs of people living with disabilities, as an important first step. This guide will support you as you move forward in creating, planning, and using inclusive options as part of your processes.
Many thanks to Sara Hawthorn for her time and expertise in writing these valuable guides.
