Thanks so much for creating this valuable resource. I was able to use it today when someone used the master/slave analogy without even blinking. I honestly had no idea people still used this language in professional settings until read this article. Then I actually heard it from someone I really admire. I couldn’t believe it.

But instead of being paralyzed, I was able to immediately send the person a private note stating the terms that were offensive and acceptable alternatives. The person apologized and agreed to stop using the offensive terminology. I also shared this article to our entire group afterwards.

Thanks again!
