This hands-on workshop took place in a web chat platform. Due to its participatory, interactive nature, an archived recording is not available.

Rising cultural awareness about gendered language in media increasingly conflicts with the rigid insufficiency of most newsroom style standards for reporting on trans people and issues.

Join this collaborative workshop with the Trans Journalists Association to learn about the gaps and errors in style guides used by newsrooms across the country and how you can help bring more careful, modern and, above all, accurate language to your newsroom style guide.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsroom leaders interested in adapting their home style guides
  • Editors and journalists looking to improve their reporting on trans people and issues
  • Everyone who would like a primer on gender language and style guides
