Black Lives Matter (BLM), inclusivity and technical communicators: What can/should technical communicators do within and without their jobs?   BLM means recognising black people have historically suffered from prejudice and injustices, and that they still do today.    We look at:  
  1. BLM and techcomm outputs
  2. Encouraging Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) people to become technical communicators
  3. Technical communicators using their skills in the wider community to support BLM
