New Report by The Wakeman Agency and IPR on DEI language in the PR Industry

The Wakeman Agency and the Institute for Public Relations Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion launched a report on the current state of diversity-related language in the public relations industry, “The Language of Diversity.” The first-of-its-kind report examines how nearly 400 communications professionals perceive the current language of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) being used in their organizations and its impact on workplace ecosystems.  

The goal of this study is to spark conversation and increase awareness of the implications of fully embedding DEI into an organization and how it supports or hinders efforts geared toward transformation, internally and externally.

This report includes the key findings of the survey and suggested definitions for frequently-used DEI terms, including diversity, equity, equality, inclusion, and social justice in organizations. Read the full report here.
