(French) National Member Webinar: Introduction to inclusive writing in French

24 November @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

(Please notice that this event will be offered in French.)

Wednesday, November 24, 2021, from 12 PM to 1 PM EST – this event is exclusive for employees of our Proud Partners and Community Partners.

What is inclusive writing? Why incorporate it, and where to start? This introductory workshop from Les 3 sex* and Club Sexu will help you learn the basics of inclusive writing! We will also attempt to debunk a few myths about inclusive writing, help participants understand the practice’s historical underpinnings, and provide a brief overview of some inclusive writing approaches and techniques. The Learn to Write About Us project will also be presented, including a guide and other training materials. Our language trainers will be available live to answer any questions you may have.

Presenters:

Magali G. Fitzbay (she/they) is Vice President and Language Consultant for Les 3 sex* and Editor of Les 3 sex* and Club Sexu’s guide to inclusive writing, upon which the training workshop will expand. She studied linguistics and is particularly interested in applications of inclusive writing in French as well as in the expression of gender in world languages. She is currently working on her Master’s degree.

Alexandra Forget (she/her), Copy editor, Les 3 sex*

Alexandra Forget (she/her) has been a copy editor for Les 3 sex* since June 2018. She also splits her time (with limited success) between a Master’s degree in teaching French at the high school level and her multiple passions: linguistics, reading, wine and flowers. She teaches the inclusive writing workshop in the hopes of democratizing the practice and demonstrating that including everyone in language is easy.
