Gender sensitive language

With the aim of linguistically including not only women and men, but all different gender identities, the Folkwang University of the Arts has introduced the use of the so-called gender star for all official university communication in the German language. A guide has been developed and approved for use in practice, which, in addition to examples on the practical use of the gender star, also contains further recommendations on how to use gender-neutral and non-discriminatory language.
