Communicating Inclusively (Workshop #8, Specialized Communications Curriculum)

You’d like to tell a story that reflects the diverse identities of the Princeton community, but you worry about accidentally reinforcing stereotypes. Or you have a story to tell that seems to have nothing to do with diversity – should it still be a consideration? What terminology is “acceptable” these days, and what would be offensive? Led by Cheri Burgess, Director, Institutional Equity and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) in the Office of the Provost, and Debbie Bazarsky, Manager, Diversity and Inclusion, in the Office of Human Resources, this workshop will focus on how to write inclusively and why it matters. You’ll learn how to identify the biases that could skew your perspective, how to watch for stereotypes and accidental messages, and gain practical tips to create your own “diversity style guide.”
