WLSV: Words matter more than ever… Inclusive language in action
February 24 @ 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Words matter more than ever… Inclusive language in action
Words have consequences. Our choice of words is a conscious way to shape the world.
Awareness of cultural perspectives and inclusive communication are helping evolve our empathy, but beyond that, the success of brands and products depend upon how they engage with their audience, and localization plays a critical role in their engagement.
Please join us virtually for an interactive panel on Feb 24, 2021, 11:30 – 12:30pm PDT
Our session will focus on best practices and resources that companies and brands are specifically developing to bring a consistent approach to inclusive language. We will discuss with our panelists how to actionably implement real programs and frameworks with inclusive language in mind, from global readiness, to education, to recommendations on what not to do.
