From Unconscious Bias to Conscious Communicator: What You Need to Do in Your Role to Foster Inclusion and Belonging

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.
