Language matters now more than ever. It’s critical to ensure we’re saying the right thing at the right time to ensure the proper message is relayed. As communicators, this is our mission at Brodeur Partners, which is why we’ve curated our own DEI Lexicon. This resource is culmination of various resources in one, searchable place, to answer critical language questions our employees or clients have. Our lexicon provides context for why we choose some words over others, and covers a vareity of key diversity, equity, and inclusion topics including:

  • How to talk about hate
  • Writing about the LGBTQIA+ community and disabilities
  • Holidays and their importance
  • Terms related to race, the LGBTQIA+ community, ableism & disabilities, ageism & classism, and religion

We update our lexicon on a monthly basis, so be sure to bookmark this page to ensure you always have the latest information at your fingertips.
