Strategic Communications

There is a difference between what you say and what people hear. Our communications strategists know how to craft strategic messaging that speaks to people’s values so that your message really lands. From external impact reports to internal communications to staff, we can help you make the change you want to see a reality.

Skill-building Workshops

As we look to support your efforts to communicate more effectively both internally and externally, a skill-building workshop may be appropriate. Some of our most popular workshops include: 

Unconscious Bias in Marketing & Branding
More than any other time in human history, consumers are vetting companies based on their social and political values. This workshop helps teams recognize unconscious bias and practice skills to mitigate bias in their work so that you can grow your brand with new, diverse audiences. 

Unconscious Bias in Editorial Coverage
Journalists and content creators are looking to decenter systems of oppression in their news coverage, but how do you begin to do that? This workshop provides shared language around unconscious bias and how it shows up in the news and content creation. A short simulation allows attendees to experience their biases, and we introduce a content screen that participants can customize.

Equity in Communications
A full-day experience based on the book Equity by Brevity & Wit Founder Minal Bopaiah, this workshop prepares participants to communicate externally about an organization’s DEI or social justice work. The workshop shares research and best practices from behavior change communications, and how to frame communications to engage audiences who may identify differently in terms of political ideology, world outlook, or personal values.

Inclusive Style Guides

An Inclusive Style Guide helps organizations consider how visuals and language may be interpreted and accessed by different audiences. This resource offers best practices for creating inclusive and respectful communications that appeal to diverse audiences, and can be customized based on an organization’s specific needs. Sections may include: contextualizing images; obtaining informed consent; sourcing and using stock photographs; and writing text alternatives in digital communications (e.g., website, newsletters, social media, etc.). As part of developing an inclusive style guide, Brevity & Wit can audit an organization’s publications and provide recommendations for areas for improvement of language and/or visual assets.
