Our language keeps changing, as it should, to reflect the times. In this highly interactive 3-hour webinar, we’ll tackle recent trends in the language (such as singular “they”) and examine sources of guidance on topics including race, sex and gender, and disability. You’ll be given helpful information and resources—but we want to hear your suggestions and experience, too. Start the new year off in this safe space to explore sensitive issues—and refresh your editorial tool kit!
