Conscious Style Guide

Inclusivity is a core tenant of both personal and professional interactions. For "the latest news, opinions, and guides on conscious language - all in one place," turn to Conscious Style Guide. Launched by award-winning editor Karen Yin in 2015, this site curates articles, guides, and newsletters promoting "inclusive, empowering, and respectful language." These resources are divided into categories such as Ability and Disability, Ethnicity, Race + Nationality, and Gender, Sex + Sexuality. Each section includes articles produced by the Conscious Style Guide team, as well as links to external sources. These resources inform readers on how to make conscientious and inclusive language and style choices. For example, the Ability and Disability section contains information on adapting images on websites to be accessible for screen reader users and avoiding ableist language. The site also produces a monthly newsletter that covers topics relevant to inclusivity and highlights news stories that show thoughtful writing. For example, the April 2020 edition included resources for conscious coverage of COVID-19. Readers can subscribe to this free newsletter by following the instructions on the Newsletter page. Conscious Style Guide is endorsed by several members of the science and journalism communities, including NASA and the Chicago Manual of Style Online.
