Presentation Summary

In today’s world, the language surrounding diversity, equality and inclusion is ever-changing and expanding.  In this session, we’ll take a look at commonly used terms and acronyms (and some that are not so commonly used) to understand exactly what they mean and what they mean to the communities they represent.  We’ll have guided discussion and dialog about how best to educate employees on these words and their impact and how normalizing this language can lead to a more inclusive working environment.
