ACCENT – A HIDDEN BARRIER TO CONNECT?
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.
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? . . .
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.
