BECAUSE EVERYONE DESERVES TO BE HEARD
Inclusive Listening: Tuning Your Ear to Accents® is an accent-bias mitigation workshop. Attendees acquire a methodology to systematically understand global accents.
Mitigating accent-bias builds a sense of belonging for all.
“At our agency, the Inclusive Listening program is extremely popular. It is often delivered as a follow up to the Powerful Pronunciation program. Our diverse workforce has found the program relevant, valuable, and easy to follow.”
Headquarters Training Officer, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, U.S. Department of the Treasury
COMMUNICATION: A TWO-WAY STREET
Inclusive Listening: Tuning Your Ear to Accents® helps all members of an organization bridge the language divide.
When it comes to improving communication, the focus is often on accent reduction. But communication is a two-way street, and there are tools to help everyone create effective, two-way dialogue.
“Having the balance of non-native speakers learning to reduce their accent and then meeting that with native speakers learning to understand accents is just really cutting edge as companies go global.”
DIVERSITY INITIATIVE MANAGER, GENERAL MOTORS
A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH
Our methodology systematically, and rapidly, ‘tunes the ear’ to unfamiliar accents.
It minimizes the need for colleagues and clients to ask, or hear, the questions, “What did you say? Can you repeat that?” It removes barriers to participation, collaboration, and seamless knowledge transfer.
This accent bias mitigation workshop can be conducted online or onsite. Participants learn to:
- ‘Tune their ear’ to global accents
- Listen better so others speak more
- Minimize communication barriers while appreciating each person’s unique cultural identity
- Use nine critical speaking techniques that create collaborative communication
- Pronounce non-English names with precision, the first time
- Create stress free communication in the workforce
Inclusive Listening: Tuning Your Ear to Accents® is used at DiversityInc Top 50 companies, and U.S. accredited universities.
