HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:
Everyday language is often unnecessarily gendered. By shifting towards inclusive language, we can contribute to a more affirming environment that respects the gender identities of all people.
Pronouns and names are not the only parts of language marked by gender. Always be mindful of your assumptions and consider gender-neutral ways of communicating the same phrases. These tips are especially important in instances where you are referring to a general audience or don’t know the gender of the people you are speaking to.
