Introducing inclusive language is a process that requires strategy, planning, time and resources.
How do you start? And where? Do we need a guideline? How do we get all our staff on board? How can we deal with critical voices and convince them?
We support you in answering these and other questions.
We accompany you on the path to inclusive, equitable communication. We offer consultations, strategy workshops and working group facilitation to provide clarity and enable you to make informed decisions.
"Inclusive communication is a topic that is also discussed very emotionally in companies. For us at Bayer, it is important that everyone is addressed and that no one feels excluded.

Now we are on an exciting journey and are glad to be able to rely on the expertise of Fairlanguage."

You decide what you need feedback on or inspiration on. We'll be there to advise and support.
