A Guide for Planning Union Conferences in Clear Language

We've all been at events where we've felt confused or left out when we don't understand what's going on. Sometimes, this happens because of the way people talk or how information is presented. Over the last few years, the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) and other labour groups have taken steps to integrate a literacy and clear language approach into their communications, courses and conferences to avoid that confusion and sense of exclusion. As part of this effort, the Canadian Labour Congress has developed this guide for staff and activists in the labour movement who are involved in organizing conferences or other large events for their members.

This guide includes
- an explanation of how clear language can help make conferences more inclusive;
- concrete tools for planning a clear language conference;
- a model for developing guidelines for "thinking equality" when planning labour events;
- selection of clear language resources.
