This is one section of the CSCCE STEM community management glossary (view the full glossary on our website); a work in progress that will ultimately comprise a series of themed sections focused on specific topics. This "Inclusive Language in Community Building" section of the glossary is conceptualized as an “active glossary,” where we try to provide context for how, where, and why you as a community manager might come across these terms rather than just offering definitions. One way of looking at this resource is as a collection of discussion prompts: If you work with others, try taking a few relevant terms and descriptions to your next staff meeting or coffee hour and see where the conversation takes you.

The Center for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement (CSCCE) champions the importance of human infrastructure for effective collaboration in STEM. We provide training and support for the people who make scientific collaborations succeed at scale and we also research the impact of these emerging roles.
