In an increasingly global world, language choices matter more than ever. We may know the importance of using language that respects the lived experiences of under-represented groups but we don’t always know how to recognize harmful language. Using real-world examples, writer and editor Rhonda Kronyk demonstrates how easy it can be to inadvertently use negative language and shows how we can recognize potential problems and change our writing and editing processes to make positive language choices.

Rhonda is a settler/Dene research, editing and grant consultant who works with under-represented communities and the Indigenous Editors’ Association. As editor of Write, the Writers Union of Canada magazine, approaches her work from a culturally aware perspective to ensure all voices are represented.
