Thu 16 Mar 2023 13:45 - 15:00 at 718B - Special Session 3

This session will help attendees gain understanding and confidence in using inclusive language to refer to and support a broader diversity of people in computer science. Inclusive terminology is fluid because it reflects evolving understandings of people and identities. This session provides tools to not only learn current best practices, but also to navigate the changing landscape of respectful, human-centered language that aligns with the goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Framed by an NCWIT resource—Videos that Spark Conversations—and led by a panel of expert practitioners in the CS Ed community, attendees will watch and discuss three, short videos on topics including norms for discussing identities, disability, and ethnicity. In this session, participants will (1) learn inclusive terminology and the reasons why specific terms are used for 3 types of identities through expert-guided small group discussions; and (2) learn how to use the Videos that Spark Conversations resource to enable participants to share what they have learned.
