    Overview

    Inclusive Language Training

    The goal of communication is that the listener understands the meaning you are trying to convey. If listeners feel left out or offended by the words you use, they may not receive the intended message. By being aware of the way others might interpret the language we use, we can make sure that listeners feel included and our message is heard. This course teaches how to use inclusive language in the workplace to make our communication both more respectful and more effective.

    In this course, you will learn how to:

    • Recognize ways that language may explicitly or subtly exclude an individual or group
    • Improve verbal and written communication by making language more inclusive
    • Find resources to support your usage of inclusive language

    Using inclusive language at work can benefit everyone, as it is instrumental in fostering respectful and effective communication among co-workers. Historically, everyday language has been subtly or not-so-subtly gendered and, as a result, has excluded large groups of people. Conversely, language that refers to personal characteristics like someone’s race, gender or age, even when they are not relevant to the topic, can leave people feeling excluded or singled out. Inclusive language training teaches how to be more aware of the language we choose and how simple changes in word choice can make a big difference.

    To promote a positive and productive workplace, we must all strive to avoid workplace discrimination. In addition to Traliant’s Harassment Prevention training, Unconscious Bias training, Microaggressions and Subtle Acts of Exclusion Training and Bystander Intervention training, Inclusive Language training educates your employees in how to make their written and spoken language more inclusive and more effective.
