Diversity and Inclusion Q&A LIVE: Inclusive Language
1 October 2021 @ 13:00 - 13:45Free
Join Voice At The Table D&I Consultant and BBC Learning English producer Charlotte Williams for the next session in our series of Diversity and Inclusion Q&A LIVE. In this 45 minute conversation with Voice At The Table editor and journalist Melissa Jackson, Charlotte will answer as many questions as possible relating to ‘Using Modern Inclusive Language’ in the workplace.
What sort of questions can you expect?
– Why is using the correct language so important?
– How do I know what are the correct words and phrases to use?
– What do you do when you get language wrong?
– Should I tell other people that they are using the wrong language?
Charlotte is a Diversity and Inclusion consultant and trainer at Voice At The Table, as well as a producer for BBC Learning English. Charlotte specializes in inclusive linguistics, D&I in education and the psychology of inclusive behaviours.
Charlotte’s career began in education. She taught English and in her spare time she created a role as an inclusivity advisor, as it had become clear that her school, and many others, were lacking in representation. Charlotte soon took this initiative company-wide and very quickly, she was giving nationwide and subsequently global talks on creating more inclusive spaces for management, employees and clients. She is currently the highest-rated presenter and producer on BBC Learning English, where she is writing and delivering content on inclusive language.
Informed by her degree in Applied Psychology and Sociology, Charlotte believes that an empathic and joyful approach drives effective and long-lasting behaviour change. She creates open and enjoyable training and consultancy spaces where she encourages her clients to make positive change because they WANT to, not because they are being told to.
