Description: In the Max Planck Society, gender-inclusive language is used in all documents and announcements. In consequence, gender-inclusive/gender-neutral language is used in all internal and public, written and oral, digital and analogue Max Planck documents and announcements. The form in which this happens can be chosen flexible:
Formulation options include:
* Formulating the female and male form,
* Use of Asterisk ( * ),
* Use of neutral forms
The gender asterisk “*” is unambiguous in language and avoids misunderstandings, presents all sexes adequately, contributes to equal rights for all genders and a respectful approach to gender equality, is short and comfortable and target-group-oriented.
