As we commemorate Pride Month and embrace the rich diversity of our 2SLGBTQI+ communities this June, it presents an opportune moment to reflect on the language utilized within your workplace.

Language holds immense significance, serving as the bedrock for self-expression and fostering understanding of one another. 

It is a potent instrument in affirming our identities and comprehending the world that surrounds us. With the vast array of experiences represented in our midst, the language we employ to articulate our gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, age, and other facets of our being is equally diverse.


To cultivate an environment that champions inclusive language, it is crucial to first grasp its essence. Subsequently, you can evaluate your organization's communication style and workplace culture to ensure the promotion of inclusivity and respect. 

By prioritizing the use of inclusive language both internally and externally, you create an atmosphere where employees, clients, customers, and stakeholders feel secure, embraced, and valued.

To aid you in navigating the terrain of inclusive language within your workplace, we have crafted a comprehensive guide encompassing a myriad of best practices. 

inside this guide, you will discover:

  • best practices for utilizing inclusive language concerning gender identity, people with disabilities, indigenous peoples, and more.
  • strategies for handling mistakes gracefully and respectfully.
  • guidance on developing organizational policies that foster inclusive language.
  • a glossary of key terms essential for your understanding including gender-conforming, two-spirit, and non-binary.
