Make Inclusion The Default: Actionable strategies to make your content more inclusive while avoiding FOMU (yes, FOMU)

Purna Virji

14:10 - 14:40

Inclusion is a constant work in motion. The more we learn, the better we can do. And we’re all still learning. No one gets it right all the time — accidental exclusions are inevitable. But that doesn’t mean we let the Fear of Messing Up (aka FOMU) hold us back.

Inclusion needs to be a default consideration. The content we put out into the world helps shape perceptions. It can either make people feel seen or emphasize their invisibility. It can break or reinforce harmful stereotypes. Without a conscious effort, we’re more likely to be stuck doing the same old things. Which aren’t necessarily the right things.

How do you make your marketing more inclusive? In this highly actionable and real talk, Purna will share tactics and strategies you can put into play straight away, including:

  • How to focus on accessibility
  • How to mind your language
  • How to make your creatives more inclusive
  • And hidden dangers that may be lurking in content that’s not thought of as “content”
