I admit it. I greatly appreciate a clever play on words instead of a time-worn cliché, praise instead of profanity, and inclusive language especially when an author or speaker obviously has a strong opinion one way or another.
For example, consider the following fictional article titles.
• The Millennial Problem: Generational Differences Among Volunteers
• The Boomer Problem: Generational Differences Among Volunteers
• Solving Generational Differences In A Non-Profit Environment
• Capitalizing on Each Generation’s Strengths As They Work For Your Non-Profit
Can you see how more people are included in the conversation when you start with the last item rather than one of the first two? Where else do you watch your language?
