The Language of Inclusion: How to Implement Inclusive Language Within Your Place of Work, Close Circles, and Community

Online Event

Join this conversation to explore how we can make workplaces more inclusive by addressing the “little” things, like microaggressions, before they become the big things. It takes intentionality to ensure our everyday, commonplace exchanges and environmental symbols don’t exclude people on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, religion, ability, size, age, and other social identities. Participants will discuss how microaggressions manifest within the workplace, and collectively, we’ll practice noticing, disrupting, and responding to them in an effort to promote a language of inclusion that fosters belonging and mattering across an organizational culture.
