When news breaks, too many newsrooms are left scrambling, trying to create standards around complex, sensitive topics while juggling deadlines and their own staff’s potential lack of diversity and unconscious biases. The work of moving these conversations forward too often falls to people of color and other historically underserved populations, and it’s never been clearer that this work is a responsibility every single one of us shares.

We will explore style guidance, tools, and inclusivity readers, and offer necessary context to help newsrooms make informed decisions about language usage, and introduce "Language, Please," a free resource available to all journalists and storytellers seeking to thoughtfully cover evolving social, cultural, and identity-related topics.
