Welcome to Inclusive Editing

If you're producing or reviewing content of any kind—print, digital, broadcast, or otherwise—you need this course. In less than 30 minutes, you will be armed with the ability to go beyond typical editing and instead, heighten your awareness to language that can be exclusive and even harmful.

Learn from a copyediting pro how to ensure your content is fully representative, inclusive and respectful of marginalized groups, including proper terminology and guidelines for diverse sourcing. You’ll become an even sharper editor and content creator, ready to tackle today’s most relevant content with confidence and total awareness.
