“Social Equity Foundations” (”Grundlagen der sozialen Gerechtigkeit”) ist eine neue Lernreihe der aequa-Gemeinschaft, in der Mitglieder des aequa Workshops Collective interaktive Online-Treffen zu Themen wie soziale Gerechtigkeit, Intersektionalität, empfindlich Kommunikation, gleichberechtigtes Organisieren und Peer Empowerment leiten werden.
Vorerst werden diese Workshops auf Englisch abgehalten. Bist du daran interessiert, ähnliche Workshops auf Deutsch oder in einer anderen Sprache zu veranstalten oder an ihnen teilzunehmen? Dann melde dich bei firstname.lastname@example.org und lass uns darüber reden!
Better ways with our words: an introduction to more inclusive communication
This is the second workshop in “Social Equity Foundations,” a community learning series in which members of the aequa Workshops Collective will lead interactive online meetups on topics like social equity, intersectionality, conscious communication, equitable organising and peer empowerment.
In this interactive workshop, we’ll be identifying common patterns of how bias, dominance and even violence can be conveyed through our language choices, with suggestions for transforming communication to be more inclusive.
Topics of discussion:
- positioning versus othering
- understanding microaggressions
- language best practice around issues like race, gender, sexuality, body type, dis*ability and class.
If you are new to these topics yourself or you are someone who is trying to get better at talking about these topics more courageously with friends, family, colleagues and collaborators, then this workshop is for you!
These workshops are offered on a sliding-scale basis from zero to €20. You will receive payment info along with the link to the video conference after registering.
For the moment, these workshops will be led in English. Are you interested in hosting or participating in similar workshops in German or another language? Get in touch with email@example.com and let’s chat about it!
