The Power of Inclusive Language

The Power of Inclusive Language

Language is one of the most powerful tools that we have; it can be used to influence, to comfort, to connect and to understand. It is a vital part of creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and included – to feel that we “belong” and are valued.

People have been marginalised and discriminated against because of their culture, race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, socioeconomic status, age and more. By using inclusive language we show that we seek to treat all people with respect, dignity and impartiality. Inclusive language is constructed to being everyone into a group and make sure no one is excluded, to enable their voices to be heard and valued, and to be able to contribute to the bigger picture.

In this article Judeline Nicholas, DSC Associate Trainer, discusses how we can learn to use language better.
