Inclusive Terminology

  Group Description  
At the March 8-9, 2022, INCITS Executive Board meeting, a new Technical Committee (TC), INCITS/Inclusive Terminology, was established to develop an INCITS standard on Inclusive Terminology.

The TC will also have the responsibility of preparing updates to the INCITS Inclusive Terminology Guidelines that will be submitted for Executive Board consideration and approval.

The Inclusive Terminology standard developed by this TC will be available to the public at no cost, to maximize awareness and adoption. The Executive Board endorses, in principle, the collaboration with other SDOs and organizations in the development of inclusive terminology standards and authorizes the TC to explore opportunities for collaboration and to bring specific proposals to the Executive Board for consideration.
