Get the credit you deserve!

Plain Language / plainlanguage.gov

Questions we’ll address:

  • How do I get credit for the Plain Language work I’m already doing?
  • How should I best promote the Plain Language work I’m doing?
  • What Plain Language opportunities are out there?
  • How to best share your work on LinkedIn, your performance plan, your IDP, and your performance review?

Here’s our panel:

  • Donna Garland, Deputy Associate Administrator for Communication, General Services Administration
  • Megan Miller, plain language writer/editor, Patent and Trademark Office
  • Jonathan Withington, Chief, Plain Language Division, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Please submit your questions to info@plainlanguage.gov by Tuesday, March 12 with the subject line: 3/13 Career Advice Meeting.
