The Language of Inclusion and The Art of the Ask

Are you sometimes unsure of not using the correct terms in your daily social interactions? Would you welcome the opportunity to learn not only inclusive language but how to genuinely engage others who may have differing viewpoints and ideas? If so, please join us for an interactive session on the ‘Art of the Ask’ and the ‘Language of Inclusion’ when it comes to gender, race, sexual orientation and ability. The session will have video clips and an exercise that will take a deep dive into strategies and language that you will be able to leverage in making your facility more welcoming for everyone. We hope to see you there.

This webinar will be held via Google Meet. Receive 1 PGA Required MSR / 1 AMP Credit for attending.
