Using inclusive language in the workplace

The language we use and hear is important to our sense of belonging in the workplace. It is also an essential tool which can help to bring people together and can support the development of relationships and bonds. When we use the wrong language, it can put up barriers (intentionally or unintentionally) and affect a person’s sense of belonging and inclusion.

This guidance provides an overview of what inclusive language is, why it is important and how you can use it to create a more inclusive workplace environment.
