How Do You Teach Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?

ABC Annual International Conference

October 3-8, 2022

Tampa, Florida USA   Virtual and Onsite

 

It’s been a tough year.  Many of us have learned to teach in an era where an incredibly infectious epidemic has ravaged through the world of academia; it has also had an incredible effect on the world we strive to prepare our students for, as well as the world in which we all live.  As educators, we work to create learning opportunities for our students so that they may be as well-equipped as possible to deal in today’s business world.

 

COVID-19 has presented a challenge for everyone, but it is this generation’s reaction to the social climate that has been prevalent for the last few years.  Our students will enter a workforce that is still trying to adapt to the ever-changing social climate.  This presents to us, as business communication educators, an incredible opportunity: how to teach our students to communicate in a world with an increased emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

 

Please participate in the popular annual conference session, “How Do You Teach Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?”  In this thoughtful session, both presenters and audience will share best practices. Presenters share a business communication-related assignment with three-to-five minutes to present (depending on number of participants). After presenting, we will talk and reflect together.  The session is also a good way to try out a new topic that may turn into something more substantial. 

 

Being part of How Do You Teach Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion? can be an easy step to presenting at ABC. Spots fill fast, so take a few minutes to submit here now.  (Onsite spots are filled; virtual presentation slots are available.)

Submit your name, university, assignment title, and a brief assignment description; this will be in the conference program. When submitting, indicate your preference for virtual or onsite presentation. You will want to share (by August 31) any handouts you will use; include them now if you want.
