Quite simply, Elonka Soros , diversity adviser to the Industry Email List BBC, said aptly: ' diversity or die' . So choose. But what does an 'inclusive writing style' mean and how does this manifest itself in practice? For my graduation file I researched the concept of 'inclusive Industry Email List word use' and I continued to follow developments in my current position. In the Industry Email List text below I divide the concept into 3 different categories where things often go 'wrong': physical and mental, sexuality and diversity. On the basis of these pillars you will discover with Industry Email List concrete examples how you can pay attention to this as a copywriter. 1. Physical & mental: it affects your text Including word usage about one's physical or mental characteristics goes way Industry Email List beyond the popular Instagram hashtag "bodypostivity." The point is that individuals are still too often identified with certain characteristics in contexts where this is not relevant. For example, you only name a person's Industry Email List physical or mental characteristics if it matters to the text and you do not identify a person with his disability. So the sentence 'The blind director works at his Industry Email List desk' becomes 'The visually impaired director works at his desk'. In this same list, a 'disabled person' is a 'person with a disability' and better still 'a person with a disability'. Also read: How to Industry Email List keep function names neutral (and therefore inclusive) Another interesting word in this category is the word 'thick'. There are already several inclusive discussions on social media about this Industry Email List term. Because in an inclusive writing style, this word is correct. It is only currently used incorrectly in the Dutch language.
