The following tool was developed based on the UWSMPH Presenter’s Guide. The goal of the guide and this checklist is to help create an inclusive learning environment for participants of all backgrounds. It is unlikely that all of the common identities or social issues listed will be discussed in your presentation or other content. However, when any of these identities are discussed, review the your content using this checklist to verify appropriate use of vocabulary and language. Suggestions for avoiding common mistakes/oversights are also included. Using appropriate language, we realize is only the first step to creating an inclusive and equitable learning environment. Please refer to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Accredited Continuing Education document attached to your faculty letter for further questions and considerations to include within your content.
