As the field of technical and professional communication (TPC) continues to find and fill the gaps in research to create, promote, and implement strategies and knowledge around antiracist pedagogy, it is essential for all TPC instructors to take on the task of becoming aware and well-informed antiracist educators, as well as for TPC programs to participate in antiracism initiatives. Doing so will better serve historically marginalized communities and continue progressing as a field in higher education institutions (HEIs), thereby, making strides towards diversity, equity, and inclusion.
