SHINE LIGHT ON AN OVERLOOKED INCLUSION BARRIER

Language and Accent Bias Research Project‚Äč

ACCENT ‚Äď A HIDDEN BARRIER TO CONNECT?‚Äč

Increasingly, we hear people talking about the impact language¬†and accents have on the way we connect to and interact with one¬†another in the informal organizational networks.¬†‚Äč

The questions surrounding this topic are many: does language or¬†accent impact how well people are integrated into organizational¬†networks? How does it affect connectivity? Is this a hidden barrier¬†to inclusion that must be addressed? . . .‚Äč

The answers, however, are very few. We at Innovisor want to change this. We have partnered up with Global Communication Specialist and best-selling author Heather Hansen to launch a ground-breaking research project on language and accent biases in organizations.
