When implementing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion practices and guidelines at your organization, it’s crucial to extend these considerations to all aspects of the company—especially published content. Agate can help your organization express its DEI values by conducting a DEI review of its written materials.
What is a DEI review of content?
Texts do not exist in an ideological vacuum—biases that exist in society at large can appear in texts as well. A Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion review examines language and imagery to identify bias in representation and propose alternatives. We apply DEI best practices and our in-house guidelines to review the treatment of topics such as age, disability, gender, race, and ethnicity. We can also collaborate with you to create organization-specific DEI guidelines.
Why is it important?
Adopters, end-users, and customers want to see themselves represented in educational content in a balanced, unbiased way, and to see others represented with thought and sensitivity. With close attention to these considerations, you can reach a wider audience and demonstrate to clients, employees, and other readers your commitment to actionable DEI goals.
