UNITY STAR: Inclusive Communication (DIV 053)

Thursday, June 9, 2022 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Inclusive Communication, as facilitated by UCF Office of Diversity and Inclusion, explores the concept that as we interact in diverse environments and strive to enhance inclusion and equity, it is important to be welcoming, appreciative, valuing, and respectful in our communications with one another. Discussions and activities develop the following ideas:

  • inclusive communication involves words, tone of voice, body language, and micromessages,
  • awareness and identification of exclusive language and phrases affords us the opportunity to rethink how to word what we say (or don’t say) so as to include all and consistently demonstrate respect,
  • understanding and applying key principles for how we treat each other assists in the process of communicating inclusively, and
  • inclusion always matters and always applies.

Please note that this workshop examines the words we use. Other workshops provided by UCF’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion explore tone of voice and body language (Communicating Across Cultures) and micromessages (Micromessages and Microaggressions).
