Consumers today increasingly support brands that mirror their values. In this context, the upside of inclusive marketing is massive, while the downside of getting it wrong can be devastating – both from a business perspective and for the humans involved.
In this AMA in the PM session, you’ll meet the team from University of St. Thomas who took their inclusive marketing practices to the next level. They will teach you to examine your own marketing content through a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) lens and how to leverage their DEI Viewfinder tool. You’ll hear how this tool was developed by auditing the university’s marketing & communications materials with real-life examples to illustrate these complex concepts.
This is a great event for anyone who creates, reviews, or shares content for your organization and wants to help make that content more inclusive.
- Identify common pitfalls that can send unintended messages and undermine inclusivity
- Learn from real-world hits and misses to more readily spot diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) issues and opportunities in your work
- Leverage the DEI Viewfinder tool to normalize DEI conversations on your team
