DE&I Communications

Being good isn’t only doing the right thing when it matters, but doing the right thing all the time.

< Back to Expertise

Diversity, equity, and inclusion should be at the centre of an organization’s identity and reputation. FHR helps put them there. In partnership with FH’s global True MOSAIC practice, we help organizations understand the importance of communicating with diverse audiences, develop strategic communications plans that authentically engage on DE&I issues and ultimately build a better, more inclusive Canada.

Whether it’s internal comms, reputation, social strategy, branding or creative services, our counsellors understand that DE&I is neither a spectator sport nor a side hustle. We’re ready to roll up our sleeves and help you pursue an authentic path forward, making all your colleagues and customers feel welcome, heard, and respected.

Helpful Tools for DE&I

We have many ways to help your organization ultimately become more diverse, equitable and inclusive. Here are some of the tools we use to do this:

DE&IQ Score: A diagnostic tool that helps organizations rapidly assess public perception of their DE&I actions to better strengthen and orient their future plans.

Decision Tree: A customizable tool to help assess when and how to engage on DE&I issues.

True SELF x True MOSAIC: Bridging FleishmanHillard’s global positioning methodology with dedicated DE&I counsellors, this intensive workshop helps organizations pursue the most authentic path forward.

Inclusive Language Workshop: An important first step to help individuals communicate consciously, this workshop highlights how common phrases are steeped in a history of systemic oppression.
