The Smartbox team has been listening the past few weeks, and we want to be clear that we stand up against racism and discrimination. We support a community that shares the mutual values of kindness and respect.
At Smartbox we believe everyone has the right to a voice. This is what the company was founded upon nearly 20 years ago and remains true today. We also believe that we can always do better.
We realise we need to do more to enable discussion of ethnicity, gender, and sexuality using our content. We have a responsibility to provide AAC users with access to the language they need to talk about these topics.
While we have work to do, we have started by creating a Diversity topic grid for Super Core with vocabulary covering culture, diversity and protest.
A topic grid can be used as a standalone resource or added into Super Core 30 or 50. It uses the same styling as the rest of Super Core and wherever possible the language is consistent. There’s also space for you to personalise it with your own words. You can find it in Online Grids now.
How to add the Diversity topic grid to Super Core
Once you’ve added the grid set to your Grid Explorer, follow these steps to add it into Super Core.
- Open your Super Core grid set and go to topics
- Edit grid > Grid set > Add from another grid set > select the Diversity topic grid
- Go back to Edit mode and select a blank cell > Create Cell > Jump to > Next
- Use the search feature to find the Diversity topic grid > Select OK
