Economia, Pernerova 673/47, Karlín, Praha 8

How to deal with generic masculine in Czech and which word combinations regarding queer people and their lives to avoid? Why is it important to address this? Mgr. Karel Pavlica Ph.D (Faculty of Social Studies, Ostrava University, Prague Pride) and Aleš Rumpel (Pride Business Forum, Prague Pride) will introduce you to the principles of sensitive and inclusive Czech language. This workshop is intended for PBF members only. Become one of them and start enjoying the benefits that our membership brings.



During the workshop, we will first briefly focus on how language as a tool of everyday use can influence the quality of life of individuals and entire groups of people, and why it is important to think about its use and meanings. Then we will introduce the basic principles of inclusive and sensitive language with a focus on queer topics, including specific examples of both bad and good practices. The event will be in workshop format, including activities aimed at practicing the presented theoretical basis.
