NASAA Inclusive Language Guide for arts organizations
Choosing words that are respectful, that reflect equity, that avoid bias—these may be among your challenges as you communicate about your work and reach out to constituents and others coping with acute social, financial and health related struggles. Your arts organization can be a standard bearer of welcoming and inclusive language. NASAA's Inclusive Language Guide can help! Along with general principles, the guide offers editorial guidance and resources regarding race and ethnicity, ability, age, gender and sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. Because respectful language changes as sensibilities change, NASAA plans to update the Inclusive Language Guide regularly.
