As this year’s UK Black History Month draws to a close, we would like to invite organisations not to forget it and move on but to begin planning ahead for 2022. The Unmistakables’ Business How-to Guide to Black History Month shares eight lessons to help brands and businesses take the right steps before activating anything in the name of the month.
The guide was developed in collaboration with contributors from The Unmistakables Network - an ever-growing inclusion network of culture-makers and commentators that we work with to surface insights from people with broad lived experiences and expertise.
Our contributors for the guide were made made up of Black talent including Chanté Joseph (social creative, writer and host of How Not to be Racist on Channel 4), Greg Bunbury (creative consultant and digital marketer), Khalia Ismain (founder of Jamii, Black British marketplace), Tanya Compas (award-winning youth worker + founder of Exist Loudly), and Rhammel O’Dwyer-Afflick (director of communications for Pride in London).
As we approach 2022, we will continue to expand The Unmistakables Network, to continue to build circular connections between our clients, their brands and organisations, and our contributors. Through the network we are able to bring in a range of voices - with representation of all protected characteristics - to access deeper understanding of communities and provide unparalleled cultural insights to help build content, campaigns and commentary inclusively.
