3. Be aware of language

The language we use to describe individuals and groups of people can have a huge impact. Language constantly changes, certain terms we used in the past are now considered highly offensive, so have been replaced with new terminology. This is because we now understand and acknowledge the unpleasant history behind specific words, and the context in which they were formulated. Use the glossary below to educate yourself on contemporary diversity, inclusion and belonging terminology.
