GM=EqAl Inclusive Language Guidance

The GM Equality Alliance (GM=EqAl) is a coalition of organisations and individuals drawn from a wide range of communities of experience across Greater Manchester.

Our Inclusive Language Subgroup meets bi-monthly to produce guidance to help GM=EqAl members and staff be respectful and consistent in our internal and external communications. We hope others will find the slides useful, and welcome feedback and suggestions. Email hannah.berry@gmcvo.org.uk.
