The Language and Communications Programme is committed to creating a working environment that embraces equality, inclusivity and diversity, in support of the System-Wide Strategy on Gender Parity. To this end, the LCP co-created the Gender-Inclusive Language Guidelines in the six official languages of the United Nations. Please use them and share your comments and suggestions in any of the six official UN languages through the contact form.
