As a company, the language you use has power. When used consciously, it creates relationships, fosters mutual understanding, and forges a workplace where everyone feels heard, respected, and valued.
But when it’s not, it keeps stereotypes and biases alive. It causes discomfort and harm. It furthers exclusion.
Communicating more consciously as an organisation requires a collective effort. It requires everyone to challenge the language you use every day. It requires you to consciously rewrite old habits, and rewire new ones. And it requires everyone to approach every conversation with empathy and care.
But we know that change is hard. A good place to start is to get an introduction inclusive language. We’ve created an eBook where we have gathered all of our best advice on how to get started with implementing a more inclusive language and communication culture at your company.
In this eBook, you get:
- An introduction to inclusive and non-inclusive communication
- An understanding of how non-inclusive language has an impact on the people around you
- Concrete starting points to help you evaluate where you are on your inclusive communication journey and start building conscious communication processes.
