How to Identify Individual Professions Appropriately

By Program, Profession, Practitioner

The way and order in which we identify various professions can often unintentionally communicate bias to audiences of mixed professions. For example, we nearly always list our own profession first, or those professions we are most familiar with based on experience.

When discussing various professions, we encourage use of the professions preferred designation. We also support listing of professions in alphabetical order whenever listing profession in print such as event announcements, registration forms, or in surveys.
