Over the past several years, words like pivot, bandwidth, catalyze, impact, and optimize crept into our lexicon. Acronyms and phrases such as BIPOC/POC, changemaker/change-making, in these tough economic times/post-pandemic, low-hanging fruit, and others we relied upon as our trusted descriptors.

In this interactive session, we’ll compare compelling language to overused and often misused words and phrases. We’ll discuss how to improve the content of various communications vehicles by using straightforward language.
This is a free Discussion Club event exclusively for members of the Association of Philanthropic Counsel (APC).
