Inclusive Communication in the Workplace
This workshop provides participants with an opportunity to examine some basic assumptions or mindsets around inclusive (or exclusionary) communication and also develop practical insights to apply immediately at work.
Communication is a key way in which organizations, leaders and employees signal and promote inclusivity. It can also unfortunately lead to exclusion, misunderstandings, even discrimination and polarization if the impact of language and communication is not fully understood. At the workshop we begin to unravel what prevents us from being more inclusive in our communication, and bring in practically applicable insights that we can start using immediately, to become more inclusive communicators at work.
- Identify why language and communication are critical in ensuring that intentions translate into impact, when it comes to building inclusive workplaces
- Apply certain inclusive language insights into everyday communication (including 'words that matter', dismantling terms and terminology, political correctness etc.)
- Articulate the reasons why communication (words, optics, pronouns, descriptions) matter
- Recognize what keeps you and others around you from being more aware or inclusive in your communication
- Senior, Middle Level Business Leaders
- D&I Representatives
- Any Other Employees
