New Book Release: The Conscious Communicator by Janet M. Stovall and Kim Clark
By: Publish Your Purpose
DEI and social justice communications is a new and required skill set for communicators. The key to success is to embed them in your processes from the very beginning. We must acknowledge unconscious bias and learn to think and act beyond ourselves and our own limited experiences.
This book helps organizations answer the why, what, when, and how to communicate DEI and social justice subjects. In the book, Stovall and Clark introduce the DEPTH model, a framework and practical tool to help companies craft DEI and social justice and communications aligned with their mission, vision, and values - consistently, proactively, and in ways that are powerful rather than performative.
DEI touches every part of the organization beyond communications, from marketing to sales, human resources to technology. Social justice is no longer something that happens 'out there, somewhere.' In this groundbreaking book, Stovall and Clark lay out the elements of a DEI and social justice communications strategy and a roadmap that will help your organization effectively use a DEI lens to inform all of its work and interactions. The business world has the best potential to usher in change that's long overdue - and now is the time to do it.
