Walking on Eggshells: Navigating the Language of Diversity
Thursday, June 27, 2024 from 6pm-8pm
A study by the organization, More in Common, shows that 80 percent of Americans believe “political correctness is a problem in our country.” Many people feel cynical about what they feel are the excesses of diversity culture. Yet bias incidents are on the rise in many communities, and talking about issues related to diversity is more important than ever. In this training, participants will explore current research on inclusive language and why it is an important part of dismantling bias. Through interactive exercises, participants will unpack current terminology related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and discuss strategies for using the “language of diversity” in ways that promote understanding rather than division.
