Relevant Information about the Working Group on Communication

The working group is mandated to explore how national equality bodies can share information on and enhance their strategic approach to communication activities and build capacity in this area. This working group will serve as a platform for discussion, reflection and action on the effective development of communication strategies and activities by equality bodies. It will focus on the work of members in raising awareness of equality, rights and obligations among the general public and the groups experiencing discrimination.

2017

  • Organise thematic meetings on topical communication challenges that are presented by an expert (internal or external depending on the topic). The group will get to ask questions, identify the values-based messages and work together to develop responses to the challenges.
  • Contribute to the development of a Communication Toolkit on Valuing Equality. Following on from the 2012 report on Valuing Equality, the WG members will work together with experts who will undertake in-depth research into the framing of the actual communications that equality bodies use. The final objective is to develop an accessible toolkit for communicators in equality bodies for analysing and designing their own communications with values in mind. This aims to give organisations a set of practical tools that can be adapted to their own contexts, and examples of best practice.
  • Support preparation for a second training session on Social Media for Equality bodies with practical examples.
  • Continue to develop the Project Library (formerly known as Media Library) internally and externally so as to provide members with concrete examples of how to develop communication actions, as well as promoting the members’ actions to a wider audience.
