Broaden Your Reach With Inclusive Language Webinar

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The legal field is more diverse than ever and the momentum of diversification is only increasing. Across race, disability, gender, and sexuality, upcoming lawyers (and prospective clients) are more likely to identify with a broad range of experiences. In this changing landscape, it is essential for all lawyers to stay up-to-date on the technical and cultural competencies required to build client trust and public confidence. Inclusive language is one of the best ways to ensure your practice is reaching its full potential.

This program will give you the communication tools to hire and retain more diverse talent that can attract and best advocate for a broader client base. It will cover the following content areas:

    • • Overview of basic concepts and terminology
    • • Introduction to gender-neutral pronouns
    • • Inclusive communication: Practical considerations (what to ask, say, and write)
    • • Best advocacy practices: Educating the court and other parties
  • • Allyship in the office: Beyond Title VII

This program will serve as a review for both newer and well-experienced practitioners.

*This will be a Distance Learning CLE.

Please note: This is a live interactive Zoom webinar that can be viewed by participants on their own computers remotely. Participants will receive 2 hours of Live CLE credit for the webinar. You will receive the link to join and the materials 24 hours in advance of the program.

*This program has been approved for 2 hours of Substantive CLE credits in Pennsylvania and also qualifies for 2 hours of credit under the West Virginia Rules for Mandatory Continuing Legal Education.

*You will receive participation information and materials 24 hours prior to the program.

Last day to Pre-register: Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022, 11:59 p.m.
