Celebrating Drop the Jargon Day

Drop the Jargon day is today October 24th. It is a day for professionals in Australian health, community services and local government to use plain language.

All over Australia, people from organisations like Diabetes Victoria and Health Care Consumers Association and many others have been holding events to mark the day and talk about improving communication in the workplace.

Centre for Culture Ethnicity and Health and North Richmond Community Health came together for a lunchtime quiz. 22 of our staff came together to test their knowledge (and humour) and talk about using plain communication.

After a challenging twenty-five minutes, two teams tied for first place (pictured). Both organisations pledged to ‘Drop the Jargon” and use plain language in all communication.
