You Said Black Lives Matter Now What

You Said Black Lives Matter, Now What?

— how to communicate your antiracist stance

Your organisation made a public statement of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement back in the summer. So what’s the work that you need to continue, to make sure that statement holds substance?  You might not be the CEO but whatever your position, you have power to make change.

In this practical workshop, you’ll work in groups through the internal and external communications frameworks that put you on the path to communicating your organisation’s anti-racist stance.

What will I gain?

— An outline of the Internal and External Comms framework that takes inclusivity fully into account

— A set of actions to take forward

— Ideas and insights from your peers

This session won’t be recorded for the Access All Areas Pass.
