'Reaching Out to Speakers of Limited English: How to Do It and Why It Matters

June 14, 2023 - 11:30 am-1:00 pm (US Eastern)

Your Presenter:
Craig Storti, Intercultural/DEI Communication Specialist

Have you ever hesitated to initiate communication with someone with limited English skills? Such interactions can be stressful and feel clumsy. You might be tempted to avoid the situation altogether. However, avoidance is not an option for people in public-facing positions, nor for you as a welcoming community member. In this session Craig Storti sets the context for the interactions and then will share practical, immediately actionable tips for how to more effectively communicate across this linguistic barrier. You will be surprised with what he has come up with (or maybe not!) You can expect and look forward to Craig’s clever solutions to those sticky Intercultural/DEI situations.

And, if you don’t regularly work with limited English speakers, don’t worry: Craig’s tips apply to any situation where one speaker has limited skill in the language of communication!
