Words Matter

Seminar / 18 June 2021

The field of diversity and inclusion has grown significantly in recent times, something to be celebrated, however, this has meant that the terminology has grown, too. The words we use matter. They can reflect bias or challenge it and can be the difference between building a bonded team or dividing it. Being aware of the vocabulary we use will support the work we all must do to create an industry where everyone feels welcome. 

A our webinar co-hosted with Homes England and Black Professionals in Construction, our experts, Julie Musesoglu, Senior Diversity and Inclusion Manager at Homes England, and Michelle Seale, Black Professionals in Construction, discussed this developing field and provided an opportunity for members to ask questions.
