Words Matter! is designed to raise awareness about the power of language as well as offer opportunities for UIC campus members to engage with the concept of inclusive language and its connection to identities, inequality, and power.
The workshop series is open to students, faculty, and staff across campus who are interested in learning more about the power of word choice and how to make their classrooms and workplaces more inclusive. Workshop participants will engage in dialogue with their fellow campus members, watch short videos, review current literature, and have an opportunity to discuss strategies for change.
During Fall 2016, there will be seven workshops offered. All workshops will be from 12-2PM and lunch will be provided.
The next workshop is Monday, Octoberber 10th at 12:00 p.m. at the Daley Library 1-470. You can download the poster!
