#TSquared 15 – Inclusive Language

The use of gender non-specific language (e.g. 'partner' instead of 'husband', or 'they' or 'ze' instead of 'she') to avoid assumptions around gender identity and sexual orientation, and to enhance the accessibility of information and services. Educational, social service, and health professionals are especially encouraged to use inclusive language until advised otherwise by the person they are talking to or about.
