The Importance of Language for Equality in the Work Place

The Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte) announced that we (with Anna as project manager) were given just over 3,2 million SEK in research funds for our research about how gender-neutral and gender fair language can lead to increased equality in society on the 27thof September.

The title of the project is The Importance of Language for Equality in the Work Place,and aims to investigate just that. How can actively constructed attempts towards gender neutrality and inclusiveness, e.g. hen, affect actual equality and decrease discrimination within working life?
