Microsoft has added inclusive language proofing features to the web based Office 365 applications and some of the desktop Office applications. These proofing features are not enabled by default, so to take advantage of them you must first turn them on – this resource will show you how to do that.
What is inclusive language?
UNC’s Policy on Gender-Inclusive Language states: “The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community. Consistent with that commitment, gender-inclusive terms (chair; first-year student; upper-level student, etc.) should be used on University documents, websites and policies.”
