Launch of the Inclusive Communication Guide
With the Community of Practice on Inclusive Communication and HuCom, we have worked since April 2022 on topics of Inclusive communication. Together, we explored ways to make our communication work more ethical, inclusive and equitable in all senses. Not only through the stories we tell, or the words and images we use, but also in our ways of working with our international partners and communities involved. We put the results of this exploration into the Inclusive Communication Guide, which includes guiding principles, a glossary and future briefs with reflections on topics such as history, power relations and storytelling. We created the Inclusive Communication guide as an attempt to train ourselves and others in making the communication practices in our sector more inclusive.
Prize for the best master’s thesis on humanitarian communication
After the launch, it is time for the nominated students to present their research on humanitarian communication and the representation of international cooperation and humanitarian aid. Each nominee will give a short presentation of their thesis in Pecha Kucha style (i.e. 20 slides to be shown for 20 seconds each). Afterwards, the jury will announce the winner. Following the ceremony, there will be drinks and bites. The Humanitarian Communication Thesis Prize 2023 is supported by ASCA and BuzzHouse.
