THE SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT OF DIFFERENT ACCENTS IN IRELAND SURVEY


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. We are very unapologetic and very intentional about weaving accent inclusion into the fabric of all forms of organisational communication as well as eliminating a covert but critical barrier that makes it very difficult for people to gain employment.

This survey will help provide the empirical evidence that is needed in effectively executing our project in Ireland and give a clearer picture of how different people are impacted by their accents in the society and organisations.

THE SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT OF REGIONAL AND FOREIGN ACCENTS IN THE UK SURVEY


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. We are very unapologetic and very intentional about weaving accent inclusion into the fabric of all forms of organisational communication as well as eliminating a covert but critical barrier that makes it very difficult for people to gain employment.

Language and culture go hand in hand, while some studies have been done to highlight the impact of regional accents in the UK, the socioeconomic impact of speaking with a foreign accent in the UK is still unaccounted for despite Uk’s rich cultural diversity combined with the fact that people who speak with foreign accents are disproportionately impacted by accent bias.

This extensive study will provide a knowledge balance around the socioeconomic impact of both regional and foreign accents discrimination in the UK as well as provide the empirical evidence that is needed to effectively execute the #ProtectAccent project in the UK and also paint a clearer picture of how different people are impacted by their accents in the society and organisations.
