During the month of April we will constantly update this page with new articles, events, videos and many more. All related to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Beloning. So keep an eye on this page, and don’t miss anything.

Textmetrics research

Textmetrics Street Survey

Gendered words. We all know that it exists but most of the time we are not aware of what we use ourselves. Gender divers language is a big part of diverse and inclusive language.

Therefore, we did a small street survey in Arnhem (the Netherlands). To see which gendered words people were most attracted to: top or goed. Watch the video to find out which word is masculine/feminine, and what the results are.
