An Introduction to Conscious Language

February 26th @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST
conscious-language

Often without our realizing it, our word choices can make the difference between presenting a biased, potentially stigmatizing message and a respectful, inclusive one. This talk will cover some language categories in which unconscious bias is common and suggest alternatives to problematic terms so that we can all ensure we are being mindful of a variety of readers’ perspectives.

Jill Campbell is the senior copy editor at America’s Test Kitchen, where she has edited the nationally distributed magazines Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country as well as the recent New York Times best seller The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs. She has earned editing certificates from the University of Chicago and Emerson College and has been a member of ACES: The Society for Editing since 2014. She tweets about editing, mental health, and the frustrations of the MBTA @jillysull and Instagrams too many cat photos @jillybeansoup (just kidding—there’s no such thing as too many cat photos).
