Language is the foundation of our society and holds so much influence. Oftentimes, unconscious biases are shown through the people’ choice to use certain words over others that sometimes goes unnoticed. When it’ analyzed further, however, it becomes clear that language holds so much power. In our next LinkedIn Live, Dr. Suzanne Wertheim, Inclusive language expert and anti-bias consultant, and Dr. Leann Pereira, Senior Director of Organizational Psychology at Emtrain, will discuss the importance of being aware of and recognizing the hidden meaning in language and the power that just one word can have. They will also go over the main topics of Suzanne’ book, Let's Talk Inclusive Language (to be published in 2023) and will dive into her 6 principles of language, based on 2 decades of data from multiple languages and countries. Later they will discuss the concept of erasure and how it relates to language.
