EOF 2017 - Talk on Inclusive Language

In this talk, Professor Timothy O’Leary and Dr. Aditi Jhaveri will introduce the concept of “Inclusive language”, its importance and rationale. Examples of inclusive and non-inclusive language will be discussed and their respective benefits and harms. We will discuss the importance of having Guidelines in place at HKU, for both students and staff (and the institution in general). Particular emphasis will be placed on how to raise awareness and change behaviours, without being overly prescriptive. Details of the event are as follows:
