In our June 2021 webinar, we discuss how we can have healthy conversations about racism online. How can we influence changes of perspective and promote racial equity?
We are joined by Dr Angelique Nairn, who discusses her recent research into public service anti-racism campaigns. The Human Rights Commission’s ‘Give nothing to racism’ social marketing campaign showed that bullying and hate speech can undermine social marketing and attempts to establish social unity.
She is joined by Dr Rebecca Trelease, a Māori Early Career Academic at AUT School of Communication Studies and together they explore the best way to use social media as a tool for promoting racial equity, how to engage audiences and how not-for-profits can stay at the forefront of the conversation online.
This webinar is facilitated by Dr Janet Tupou, Community Research’s new Research Programme Manager.
