Bootcamp and coach description

Inclusive language is essential in modern society. These days, one of the most proactive changes a company can make is to incorporate inclusive language into the workplace in order to build trust and attract talent.

It helps us to grow as a diverse global community where inclusivity is the very fabric of how we act, speak, feel, and think. Over the course of these five hour-long sessions, we’ll take a look at what inclusive language is all about and how it can help make you texts and translations more appealing both to your clients and their respective audiences.

The overall aim of the bootcamp is to provide you with the skills you need to produce inclusive texts and translations that speak to all societal groups without prejudice.

The bootcamp will be delivered in English, with real life examples for several language combinations.
