Writing for Everyone: Inclusive Technical Communication

January 21, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm EST

As technical communicators, the documentation we create needs to incorporate a wide range of viewpoints and perspectives, promoting responsiveness and engagement with our message. By embracing inclusive communication, we make our products and services more accessible to everyone. It’s our responsibility to ensure we are including people regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, socioeconomic status, or appearance. Event Timing: January 21, 2020 06:30-08:30 PM Location: Online through Zoom On January 21, we will be hosting a panel of mini-presentations covering different aspects of inclusive communication. Julia Southwick, Jessalyn Parrish, and Bethany Aguad will be sharing what they have learned and how to implement best practices for your communication:
  • Gender identity (Julia)
  • Using pronouns (Julia)
  • Writing for Neurodiversity (Julia)
  • Managing your Biases (Bethany)
  • Checking your privilege (Bethany)
  • Embracing cultural diversity in the Tech World (Jesslyn)
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Alongside the program, Julia has published an article with a list of annotated resources for technical communicators to learn more about inclusive communication.
