In today’s social climate, organizations are feeling the pressure to communicate about their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts both internally and externally. For some, this has been a major area of focus for a long time, while others are still formalizing their programs and processes to support DEI.
In almost all cases, marketing and communications leaders are being called on to communicate their organizations efforts around DEI. With this comes a host of unique challenges:
- Defining what diversity means within your organization
- Considering how to create and talk about formal systems to promote DEI
- Encouraging and preparing leadership to speak about diversity in a meaningful way
- Determining how to communicate about DEI authentically, even as an organization is striving to improve its internal processes around DEI
- Considering where and how DEI plays into overall brand communications
- Deciding when to take credit for successes, and how open to be in discussing areas for improvement
This closed-door session on Wednesday, April 27th at 11:00am EDT | 4:00pm BST is designed for members to share their successes, challenges, and best practices around both internal and external DEI communications. All attendees will be encouraged to share their experiences and thoughts on the topic.
With this conversation led by Financial Narrative Members Amber Skinner-Jozefson of e.pop AI and Piper HQ and Jennifer Wallace of Wells Fargo – members will learn from each others’ experiences and share thinking on how organizations and the finance industry as a whole can be more effectively communicating about DEI.
