Rising Leaders Roundtable: Advocating for Inclusivity by Calling In (Instead of Calling Out)

This is for you if:

  • You want to do the right thing and be a change leader.
  • You want to feel confident in speaking up when you hear something you disagree with.
  • You want to create an inclusive environment for marginalized and forgotten communities *without* making the majority feel guilty about common habits.

You'll learn:

  • Why inclusive language is so important in today's professional world.
  • How to shift your everyday word choice to be anti-ableist.
  • How to "call in" your peers and colleagues to build inclusivity and strengthen connections

What to Expect:

  • Short overview of the topic by guest expert, Lia Seth.
  • Small group discussions in breakout rooms - get ready to have some real talk with your peers.
  • Due to the interactive nature of breakout rooms, only the presentation will be recorded.

  • All roundtables are free with $40 a month Pro Access.
  • Or, get $5 off tickets for $5 a month with Basic Access.
  • Or, buy full price tickets for $20 with Limited Access.

I'd love to attend but I have a conflict. Will this be offered again, or should I register and watch the recording?

Hey Luci, we do record the expert-led presentations at the start of each roundtable, so registering is a great idea, as we can also share the recording in a post-event email.
