The importance of language

The language we use to describe people and discuss issues really matters. Our words can be used to challenge stigma but they can also reinforce discrimination and increase barriers for people. We know that sometimes, when abusive language isn’t challenged, it can turn into more serious bullying. Make sure you know what language is acceptable and not acceptable when describing people, think about how your tone and words affect other people and always challenge abusive language. We describe below some of the most common errors people make in their language use and actions you can take to address these.
