Inclusive Communication

Thursday, March 2, 2023 10 a.m. to noon

Facilitators: Kavita Sawh and Azon Bonifacio

As facilitated by UCF’s Office of Diversity Education and Training, Inclusive Communication 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 allows us to rethink how to word what we say (or don’t say) 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
  • The importance of inclusion in diverse environments

Please note: This workshop examines the words we use. Other workshops provided by UCF’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion explore tone of voice, body language, and micromessages.

Pre-registration is REQUIRED by no later than three days prior to the start of the workshop.
