Join Erin Olson, Apra Wisconsin's director of programming and WFAA Prospect Identification Analyst, and learn about common practices of inclusive language in the workplace.
Inclusive language encompasses words and phrases that treat everyone equally and create a sense of belonging. It respects people of different genders, races, religions, sexual orientations, and disabilities, and it celebrates our differences that make us unique. The ultimate goal of inclusive language is to create an environment in which everyone is empowered to speak and feel confident that their voice will be heard. By choosing to use gender-neutral terms, avoiding terms that make assumptions or revert to defaults, and being mindful of historical context, we are actively working to include and create space for everyone to be their authentic selves.
Apra Wisconsin is the local chapter of Apra International for prospect development professionals living and working in Wisconsin. View our bylaws here.
Join with other colleagues in prospect development to learn, grow, and succeed.
