New workshop on using gender-neutral language and more

For all Exeter University students who are looking to enhance their employability, complete the Exeter Award or gain extra training and skills, there is now an Employability event entitled: ‘Professionalism in the Workplace: Using Non-Discriminatory Language in the Work Place’.  I will be running this workshop for the first time on Friday 17th February 1pm-2pm in Amory A115.  You must book onto the event on the Employability website: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/employability/trainingandevents/activity.php?act_id=4679

The event focuses on how the language we use alters our relationships with other people and attempts to question the language and phrases we use that we take for granted as being set and correct.  The workshop looks at the language of gender, race, disability and sexuality and ways we can improve language to make it more inclusive, promoting equal opportunity for all.
