CJC Inclusive Language Guide

Inclusive language is a major tool in our commitment to a diverse and inclusive work environment. This guide is a living document of up-to-date inclusive language practices and recommendations for best communication in the workplace. As a general rule use a colleagues name, first and last if necessary, to address them if you do not know their identifying pronouns or classifications.
