Gender- and diversity-sensitive language

Language shapes our reality and our thinking. That is why, in order to make equal opportunities possible, discrimination-free and inclusive language in which each and all are addressed equally is essential.

Guidelines and BFH recommendations

Communication at BFH is respectful and discrimination-free. Language guidelines and recommendations on gender- and diversity-sensitive language help implement these principles.

With the guidelines on linguistic equality BFH promotes equality of women and men and supports the use of gender-sensitive language.

Based on new developments in language and the associated increased concern for gender diversity in language and image, the Specialist Service Equal Opportunities has drawn up recommendations for gender- and diversity-sensitive language at BFH. These recommendations complement the guidelines.
