This webinar is designed to advance your understanding of key concepts related to gender equality in the Spanish language. In this dynamic session, we delve into a range of critical topics, from the fundamental distinctions between sex and gender to the intricacies of gender identity, expression, sexual orientation, and more. 

One of the central components of our webinar is equipping you with the practical skills to use inclusive pronouns and gender-inclusive language effectively in Spanish. These tools will empower you to make informed language choices that promote equity and inclusivity.

Furthermore, our session will introduce you to diverse strategies for implementing gender-inclusive language in your communication, whether spoken or written. You will gain the ability to discern whether texts exhibit gender-negativity, neutrality, sensitivity, positivity, or transformation. Language is a potent instrument of change, and as language practitioners, you can be instrumental in promoting a more equitable world.
