The working group on Linguistic bias aims to engage all members of the UW community in the acknowledgment of language diversity on campus and the role of linguistic bias in diversity, equity, and inclusion. The role of language in this can be framed in terms of the endeavor itself:

Diversity: We must acknowledge the value of diverse languages and varieties of those languages on campus.

Equity: We must recognize that all languages and varieties of languages are equal.

Inclusion: We must welcome the use of all varieties of language in the campus community.
