Conscious Communicator Swag
When someone says something, take a sip,
or a note, or point to a magnet or sticker.
Meet the authors: Janet M. Stovall
and Kim Clark
Janet's three TED Talks have inspired millions around the globe, especially with her famous quote, "I believe business can dismantle racism."
Kim's mix of compassion and impatience helps communicators understand the urgency and inspires them to action because, "language leads to behavior."
Good Words About The Conscious Communicator
Journalist, Speaker, Author, Speaking of Race: Why Everybody Needs to Talk About Racism―and How to Do It
“This is the book that's missing from the conversation about equity and inclusivity in the workplace. The need for it is so great that I thought about writing it myself! Thank goodness Janet Stovall and Kim Clark have done the work, based on years of experience and expertise. This book will help a lot of people and a lot of companies.”
Author, The Opposite Of Hate:
A Field Guide To Repairing Our Humanity
"Communications can bring people together or tear them apart, build societies up or burn them down. With so much at stake, we have to move beyond the performative to do the transformative. This book shows us how."
Dr. Jennifer A. Richeson
Philip R. Allen Professor of Psychology
“There’s a thin line between reality and mythology, and communicators have to pick a side. This book will help them pick the right one.”
Author, Inclusion, How to be an Inclusive Leader, and Beyond Diversity
“More and more, organizations are being asked to take a stand on issues important to the incoming generation of talent, and they are woefully unprepared – or worse, resistant to using their voice. Stovall and Clark have offered a model that can be utilized to make sure leaders build the organizational muscle of inclusive communications so that they never miss the opportunity to deepen their relationships with key stakeholders in the moments that matter.”
National Political Leader
“The Conscious Communicator will help leaders understand how to manage through this incredibly complicated environment, to lead with authority, clarity, and integrity. That’s what the 21st century demands.”
Innovation Leader, TED Speaker
“The events of the last few years have brought issues of race, gender, and identity to the forefront of everyday life. Leaders across every industry need to be better equipped to have emotional and difficult conversations in the workplace. Honestly, we can all use help in avoiding saying stupid sh*t."
Anita Ford Saunders, APR
PRSA Diversity & Inclusion Committee
"The Conscious Communicator: The fine art of not saying stupid sh*t is your wakeup and clarion call that communications through an equity and social justice lens are achievable.
The Conscious Communicator will teach you how to stay away from the sheltered areas and color outside the lines to get a clear picture of the possibilities. It’s more than a road map. It gives permission to look inside yourself and that of your organization and say, DE&I is more than a 'special interest.'"
President, IABC, Edmonton Chapter
“This is the book that all communications professionals need right now. Navigating the world of DEI in your organization is not for the faint of heart.
As internal and external communicators, you are often looked to for what to say and when to say it when it comes to social justice issues. As the conscience of the organization, having a resource like Janet and Kim’s book at your fingertips can help provide the confidence to back those decisions up. 10/10 would recommend this to any communicator!”
Worldcom PR Group EMEA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Chair
“This book reminds all of us who are privileged to work in communications that we have the responsibility to unleash the power of words and images as drivers to a more diverse, inclusive and accessible organization. Kim and Janet not only challenge our minds and thoughts, but they give us a methodology to put our work into action. The Conscious Communicator is a ground-breaking book that will help us transform organizations into actors of a most needed social change.”
