February 28, 2020 #CommsChat on attracting diverse talent

At the beginning of National Careers Week, Francis Ingham from the PRCA and PR & comms lead at Growth and Grace Collective, Harriet Smallies will join us for a #CommsChat on attracting diverse talent into the comms industry. Topics include:

  • Why is workforce diversity a crucial issue for the communications industry?
  • Why are there so few entry-level candidates from BAME backgrounds?
  • What steps can individuals/companies take to attract more diverse candidates to entry-level roles?
  • Why have the creative industries in particular been so poor at recruiting diverse professionals?
  • What myths about working in comms need to be addressed with potential candidates?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place every Monday, from 8-9pm GMT. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will be posted to on Tuesday morning. We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics – please get in touch with Brittany via Twitter or email or contact us on Twitter with your ideas.
