The #ProtectAccent Project

About the Organizers

The Protect Accent project is about empowering and equipping businesses and individuals to promote equality and diversity among their workforces and eliminating unlawful discrimination and unconscious biases and stereotypes.  Our aim is to promote acceptance and inclusivity by influencing positive behavioural changes among team members through education and by providing the empirical evidence that is necessary for driving change so as to enable organisations to be truly representative of all sections of society and customers, and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best ​Our flagship programme is to promote linguistic diversity. We believe that effective communication is key to solving problems, fostering team collaboration, promoting stakeholder engagements and buy in therefore we are committed to promoting clarity of speech but also promote accent inclusion and acceptance. Our accent is our identity and no one should be penalised for that. The aim of the protect Accent project is to highlight the issues around accentism and explore possible solutions.
