What You’ll Learn:: 
Diversity, inclusion and belonging are NOT “just an HR thing.” We are in a time that requires internal stakeholders at all levels to recognize the seriousness and impact of our words on how welcome and included our employees feel and how stakeholders perceive us. Diversity and inclusion efforts will continue to fail without communicators becoming more equipped and involved.
Kim Clark, experienced diversity and inclusion communications expert, will help us tackle our own unconscious biases, acknowledge areas where bias exists and help us see that we are well positioned to be more intentionally inclusive in our language and communications—which in turn helps our organizations lower unwanted attrition, be more innovative and increase employee engagement.
You’ll learn:
  • What unconscious bias is, how it shows up and the impact it has
  • How to address your biases in order to fulfill your role in promoting diversity, inclusion and belonging
  • How to partner with HR, employee resource groups, executives and people managers to improve the impact of company-sponsored and grassroots efforts
  • Use your understanding of unconscious biases to craft more effective communications
  • How to help managers design their teams for belonging
  • How to be and how to teach others to be a conscious communicator and adopt more inclusive language in your communications and writing
