Language Matters: Writing for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)


Session Description

It’s no secret that diverse teams are more creative, innovative, and productive. However, DEI efforts may be hindered unintentionally by exclusionary, dated, and gendered language. This interactive session will explore the coded language of exclusion and offer tools to support a culture of belonging. 

Objectives Workshop participants will learn to: 
• Identify problematic and/or exclusive language 
• Adopt vocabulary that actively promotes DEI 
• Foster inclusivity and a culture of belonging through everyday word choices
