Assignment InstructionsTELLING AN ORGANIZATION’S STORYIntroductionAs noted in Chapter 9 of Communication in Our Lives, organizations have historically been run by men. Consequently, many organizations developed and continue to use language and stories more related to men’s traditional interests and experiences than to women’s. This can exclude women and others who experience the world differently. Since organizational culture is composed of shared meanings, the use of more inclusive language helps create a stronger and more equitable organizational culture.
What organizations say about themselves—the stories they tell such as their mission and vision statements, and history—can also provide clues about their culture. Some of this information can weaken the organization’s culture. Used strategically, stories can also be used to build a desired culture. Some examples of gendered language could be, but are not limited to, policeman versus police officer, stewardess versus flight attendant, mankind versus people or humanity, work force or employees versus manpower, or fostering versus fathering. Similar examples can be found for other aspects of diversity such as culture, race, religion, and sexual orientation.
