The Clear Company Roundtable Event

We would like to invite you for our upcoming Virtual Roundtable Discussion on the impact of the use of non-inclusive language in the Infrastructure and Construction sector.

Over recent months, our team have had many thought provoking conversations around the impact of the use of non-inclusive language; including the ongoing use of traditional terms such as blue and white collar and the use of the BAME acronym. Non- Inclusive language impacts almost every aspect of a business: attracting and retaining customers, hiring and keeping talented people, increasing productivity, and driving innovation. The lack of progress around language and terminology presents barriers to ambitious EDI agenda in the sector. To get started, we need to understand why inclusive language matters, and how companies use it.

Please sign up to join the discussion on how we can influence the use of language and terminology in the Infrastructure and Construction sector.
