"Inclusive Language," facilitated by Amanda Slichter, assistant director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Marketing and Special Interest Housing at Kutztown University, noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 30, via Zoom. Language isn't the golden key to creating inclusive environments, but it's a helpful signal to our students, colleagues and other fellow humans to communicate that their identities are seen, respected and valued.
