LGBTQ+ Inclusive Language

Date: 22nd May 2024

Whether we realise it or not, our words carry power. They help us communicate our thoughts and emotions to others and have the potential to build bridges, generate influence, and effect change. They also have the potential to tear those bridges down, marginalise, and reinforce inequality.

Join The Diversity Project & LGBT Great in this interactive LGBTQ+ Inclusive Language session as we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of LGBTQ+ inclusive language. Learn practical tips and discover how to bridge the generational gap in these crucial conversations. Gain valuable insights for fostering understanding and respect to drive a more inclusive workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and embrace inclusive language: Understand the importance of using accurate and respectful language for all LGBTQ+ identities.
  • Discover what trans & non-binary inclusive language practices look like: Gain practical tips for pronouns, terminology, and creating an inclusive communication environment.
  • Bridge the generational gap: Learn strategies for fostering open and respectful conversations about LGBTQ+ issues across generations.
  • Navigate reclaimed terms responsibly: Understand the history and appropriate usage of reclaimed terms like “queer.”
  • Learn from other languages: Explore examples from languages with different grammatical structures and how they approach inclusivity.
