WEBINAR: Words Matter: The Art and Style of Conscious Language


This event has ended.

In our next Network webinar, Alex Kapitan will reprise a popular ComNet22 Learning Lab presentation and talk about how to mindfully use language to communicate across lines of difference. Alex will show that contrary to popular belief, there’s no such thing as objectively “neutral” or “correct” language, and share tools and top tips for crafting your words with care and equity—whether via organizational style guides; in publications, websites, and media; or in conversations with colleagues, partners, funders, and constituents.

We’ll explore:

  • How to reorient ourselves toward care rather than correctness
  • Ways that language can have unintended negative impacts
  • Concrete practices and communication strategies that offer respect and dignity to all and help bridge divides
