The Raw Truth About Communication

Date & Time
Wednesday, September 11, 2024, 4:15 PM - 5:30 PM

In this session we will look at the communication breakdowns that often appear in our accounting world with each other and with clients. We'll address some sensitive topics such as racism, sexism, ageism, and more. We have update the presentation to include questions that arised last year about how to communicate with people with various disabilities. Some of these will include people that are hearing impaired, someone that is autistic, a blind or vision impaired person since some of our agreements/documents are in writing, etc. We will again have roleplay scenarios taken from real-life examples from other CPB Canada members. Attendee discretion is advised due to the sensitivity of the topics that some people may find offensive. At CPB Canada's discretion, we can invite a certified HR Consultant that has experience with Equity, Diversity & Inclusion as well as a Disability Support Worker to join our session. Although we feel this topic is important, your well-being during the session remains a priority for CPB Canada, the speakers and our moderator.
