Inclusive Language and Avoiding Bias

  • Southdale Library, Helen Young Room 7001 York Ave. South Minneapolis, MN 55435 USA (map)

The person reading what you write or edit may be different from you in race, gender, sexuality, religion, or disability, and your personal identities and experiences affect how you see the world. So how can you make sure your work is as free as possible from unintentionally exclusive or offensive wording? Fellow editor Beth Wright and I will discuss the importance of inclusive language and diversity in the publishing process and share some key questions to ask, common missteps to avoid, and go-to resources to use in your writing and editing life.
