Inclusive Language & Style Guidelines

The City of London Solicitors' Company is the Livery Company for City solicitors.  The Company reflects the history and tradition of the City and its institutions, but also prides itself on being a modern organisation.  Whilst it values and honours the past, it aims to be forward-looking too.  An important part of this includes promoting a diverse membership and, in all its dealings with members and others, creating a culture whereby individuals of any gender and from all backgrounds feel comfortable, welcome, valued and, above all, included.

 

These guidelines were prepared to help in achieving a gender non-specific and inclusive approach across all of the Company’s internal and external communications. The Court of the Company approved and adopted these guidelines on 14th May 2018.
