DEI Communications - Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

Making people feel included and able to share diverse opinions makes an organization stronger, more vibrant, and more resilient.

In executing successful Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programs, what you say is as important as what you do. Even the best-intentioned plans can backfire if communicated in ways that don’t convey what you’re trying to accomplish and why. And the stakes have never been higher to get it right. The struggle for racial justice has rightly moved to center stage, and we all have a role to play in ending systemic racism. It also makes good business sense. Harvard Business Review reports that diverse companies are 70% more likely to report that they captured a new market.

Watch our webinar: Communicating to promote racial equity at work.

Featuring panelists from Horizon Blue Cross, NJ Institute for Social Justice and Panasonic, we explore how language can help build a company culture that enhances your organization’s commitments and values.

Workplace Communications Assessment

You’ll know where your existing efforts stand after we analyze whether your internal communications are inclusive and effective in today’s climate. Based on what we find, Taft will create, field, and interpret a DEI communications survey of your employees to find the right path.

DEI Event Planning

Words and visuals have their place, but sometimes you need to bring people together to truly drive change. Taft will work with you to plan your event’s purpose and goal, source speakers, script content, design the theme and presentations, and manage logistics and the event — whether in person or a virtual setting.

DEI Data & Research

In addition to keeping up with the latest relevant data, Taft’s award-winning annual New Jersey State of Diversity Surveysm — our proprietary annual poll on workplace attitudes and perceptions — will give you data you can build on.

DEI Knowledge Center

We’ll make sure you get the most from team meetings, emails and guest speakers through a central hub of clear and compelling company materials, study resources, and themed messages customized for your needs.

Communications Workshops & Coaching

Taft ClearPoint’s coaching expertise, in one-on-one sessions, group clinics, and specialized workshops will give your key people the skills and confidence to communicate DEI so it’s understood and practiced.
