Exploitive to Empowered: Equitable Language in Nonprofit Communications

October 27 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

As nonprofit professionals, we have the privilege of making choices about the language we use—whether in grant proposals, donor materials, or other external communications. Too often, we speak in generalizations or euphemisms to describe groups of people. Using shortcuts can dehumanize and oversimplify the very groups we aim to serve. However, we can work to remedy this issue by exploring the concept and practice of equitable language.

Join experts from Grants Plus to:

-Understand changes and challenges related to equity in philanthropy.
-Learn how to identify and remedy cases of inequitable language.
-Learn techniques to implement equitable language across your organization’s written and oral communications.
