People-first Language in the Workplace: May 11

Katie Algrim of the Regional Office of Education of Kane County presents on developing a culture that emphasizes members of the community first. It promotes a gratitude-based culture by developing language that promotes Fermilab community members.

About People-first Language in the Workplace: Kevin’s handicapped. Or Kevin is a person with a disability. Can you hear the difference? This is an example of person-first language. As a society we must first acknowledge that people with disabilities are people first, they are not their disability. Person-first language recognizes that ALL people have many different characteristics, skills, strengths, challenges, and interests; having a disability should not define who you are or the way you are viewed by others.
