Unconscious Linguistic Bias: Innovative Psycholinguistic-Based Strategies to Dramatically Increase the Representation of Minority Executives in Leadership and Governance Positions

Wednesday, September 27, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET // Noon – 1:30 p.m. CT // 10:00 – 11:30 p.m. ET


Overview: Unconscious linguistic bias affects us all, though we do not have these biases intentionally. There are many negative consequences of linguistic bias, however, and they contribute to why minority candidates are not well-represented in higher-level executive positions. Dr. Latterman combines psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic, and social psychological principles to enable leaders to uncover these biases and to help prevent unconscious linguistic bias from unintentionally affecting decision-making. In this webinar, she will provide participants with nuanced, research-based strategies designed to help mitigate the effects of unconscious linguistic bias. This will allow organizations to more easily and successfully diversify their leadership and governance teams.


Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what linguistic bias is and how it can negatively affect our decisions
  • Discover the connections between how leaders sound and their upward trajectory
  • Learn concrete strategies, designed to increase the representation of minority executives in the highest-level leadership positions, that can begin to be implemented immediately


Featured Speaker: Caroline Latterman, Ph.D., M.S.Ed., Founder, Linguistic Consulting.
