    Do your archives contain legacy finding aids that employ outdated or derogatory language? Are you planning to embark on a descriptive project representing an underrepresented group of people? Describing records related to women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals and communities, and those with disabilities can present a challenge to traditional archival values like "neutrality" (which was never really neutral) and "objectivity" (impossible!). With the recent rise in attention to issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in description, many archivists are interested in redressing the harms and erasures caused by inaccurate and disrespectful language
