Inclusive language checking with Acrolinx

Inclusive content, wherever you write

Does your content speak to all identities?

A 2018 survey by Deloitte revealed that non-inclusive content may lead to candidates turning down opportunities due to first impressions formed by the language companies used in interviews. And when it comes to written content, people can often tell if an organization has clear policies around diversity and inclusion, through the use of tone and phrasing in content. Which is why to speak to all identities, you need inclusive language checking for every type of enterprise content— not just recruitment materials .

Acrolinx’s AI-powered content improvement platform scales corporate diversity and inclusion efforts across your organization — providing educational guidance and reporting to support the awareness and adoption of inclusive language.
