ADCET Webinar: Words Matter - developing inclusive language guides in tertiary education settings
ADCET is delighted to bring unique voices speaking on inclusion to our webinar series. In this webinar we talk about embedding inclusive communication through language guides with a particular focus on LGBTIQA+ people with disability.

Our guest speakers Stevie Lane and Kay Barnard from Edith Cowan University bring their personal lived experiences and professional expertise as equity practitioners to talk about the importance of inclusive language within the tertiary education context.

Having recently published their inclusive language guide at ECU, Stevie and Kay will share insights into how they collaborated to produce this publication and what it means to improving organisational culture, belonging and inclusion.
