Your video and workplace media can have a big impact on users, but is it affecting everyone in the same way?

Understanding how your media choices represent people and their experiences can help you select more diverse and inclusive images and videos that impact everyone more effectively.

Jess Jackson, Racial Equity Strategist, and Megan Torrance, CEO, both of TorranceLearning, join this episode of The Visual Lounge to explain how to incorporate a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) mindset into your video and workplace media decisions.

They also talk about the unique position and responsibility creators, instructional designers and those in learning and development roles have for instilling DEIB approaches within organizations.

Learning points from the episode include:

  • What is diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging?

  • How organizations (including small businesses) can embrace more inclusive and diverse practices
  • Three key things to consider when making media choices
