Inclusive Language and Community Names

This document, published by Commerce's Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion as an introduction to some of the terminology around inclusive language and the subject of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), is a 'beginner's guide' to the topic.  It’s not meant to be an all-encompassing list of the different words or terms that communities use.

More information about Commerce's DEI work is available elsewhere on this site.
