Proudly Said – Writing and Speaking for LGBTQ Inclusion

Jaron Terry Communications developed the award-winning presentation for the PRSA International Conference 2016 (ICON’16). The objective was twofold: 1) to advance diversity and inclusion in the profession through members’ enhanced understanding and use of inclusive language to make our organization more attractive to existing and prospective members; and 2) to educate members regarding inclusive language and enhance their tactical competencies to avoid inadvertent spokesperson faux pas through ensuring that writing and speaking are respectful and inclusive of LGBTQ audiences. Co-presenters included a transactivist who is a corporate diversity-training expert and the equality beat reporter, Indianapolis Star.
