"Kind words", our diversity-friendly initiative!


Words are impactful.


To be as inclusive as possible with our content, we follow the CERN English language style guide as well as general guidelines for gender-inclusive language.

Although the content-management framework and theme used for our website are not always fully flexible with fonts, we have also adopted neurodiversity-friendly styling wherever possible and we try to offer alternatives to information-rich and visually-dense pages. The following icon will inform you when an alternative format is available :

As there may be much more we could do reinforce our initiative, we need to hear from you, so please send us your suggestions!
