SIDA Inclusive Language Guide

Our inclusive language guide aims to help colleagues avoid bias, stop reinforcing existing power structures, and convey respect.

With this language guide we hope to ensure our language is contributing to—not getting in the way of—the fundamental changes we are looking to make in the world: equality, inclusion, fairness, decolonisation, and global justice.

We are committed to keeping this guide updated, as we recognise that language is continually evolving. If you have any feedback contact us at
