The Inclusivity Toolkit
Break down barriers within your communication
You have identified that your target audience is made up of a variety of personas. But how can you ensure that your communications outputs reflect this diversity?
At Cartoonbase, we are committed to leaving no one behind.
To help you produce communications materials with diversity built in, we have compiled the tips and resources we use in-house in a free Inclusivity Toolkit.
Experience and co-creation
"Nothing about them without them" was the thread that guided our reflection. We started wondering what we could improve to produce inclusive communications materials. So we began talking. First among ourselves. Then inviting external references to the table. Until we decided to organise our reflections in a short document to add consistency to our own practices and help others follow suit.
