Towards More Inclusion in Communication

What does inclusive communication consist of? How can we recognise inclusive texts and pictures? What are the big pitfalls or dilemmas when creating more inclusive communication?

In this workshop, you will work. Be ready to be challenged. You will self-reflect, discuss inclusion with your colleagues and put theory into practice to create more inclusion in communication.

The workshop aims to increase communications officers' knowledge about diversity and inclusion, to understand how unconscious biases and discriminatory practices can appear and how they can be recognised in our everyday work
