Does Your DEI Policy Provide Clear Guidance on Communications? Probably Not.

The survey for the 2022 Nonprofit Communications Trends Report will be open through Dec 29. Please take the survey now to be a part of this timely research!

If your organization has a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policy, you are likely interested in how that policy should play out in your communications work.

So we wondered how many communications folks working at nonprofits with DEI policies felt like the policy provided good guidance to them. Not surprisingly, the preliminary results from the Trends Survey show that guidance is seriously lacking. Here’s the data to date.

If you have a DEI policy, does it provide clear guidance on implementing the policy within your communications work?

No – 39%

Limited Guidance: 31%

Yes: 16%

Unsure: 14%

We will provide the final data, including more specifics on the barriers and concerns that nonprofit communicators need help with as they implement DEI policies, when we release the full report in mid-January.

Our colleagues Antionette Kerr and Nicki Faircloth are also working on some new training to help communications staff navigate some of these concerns. If you have thoughts on the type of training you’d like to receive, leave a comment below and we’ll pass it on to them.
