Communication Strategies and Practices

Project Library – Good Practice Exchange of Communication Actions

What is the Equinet Project Library?

The Equinet Project Library is an online platform for public presentation of the communication work of national equality bodies. It will collect summary reports from equality bodies about their communication actions, including public campaigns, communications initiatives, video clips, posters and other materials developed by Equinet members or external actors.

Good Practice Exchange of Communication Actions

Found on the internal section of the Equinet website, the Forum for the Communications Working Group, aims to collect a detailed account of the communications action to make for easier good practice exchange for Equinet members. It should provide details of the whole communication action (including delicate information etc.) to make for clear good practices examples for communications colleagues. Being in the Forum section of the Equinet website, it will allow you to ask questions regarding the action and post your own actions.
