Have you ever wondered what the difference between a dialect and an accent is? Or how your voice can help or hurt you in the professional world? This workshop--rescheduled for Thursday, March 28 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.--will answer those questions and more with an extended discussion led by Linguistics PhD student Kelly Wright.
Kelly will give a primer on speech perception—how it works and how we perceive people through their voices—and will share her research on dialect discrimination. She’ll also offer some advice for how to celebrate your voice in the workplace.
The workshop is part of the Celebrate Your Voice at Work campaign presented by the LSA Opportunity Hub, which helps LSA undergrads fulfill their professional aspirations.
