The UInclude Editor is an editing application that eliminates gender biased wording from job descriptions. Our tool scans job descriptions for gendered words, provides replacement words, and gets the job description to a place of gender neutrality, ultimately helping employers attract and build a more gender-diverse talent base!
Begin the editing process by pasting your job description in the text-box.
UInclude Editor will provide you with a gender bias score, highlight all instances of gender-biased words in the description, and suggest gender neutral words as replacements.
Eliminate those words entirely with the aid of our tool. Once you've completed the editing process and increased your score, your job description is ready to go!

Gendered wording refers to masculine and feminine words that are often associated with gender stereotypes. Words such as competitive, dominant, and force have a masculine connotation, and words such as devote, support, and help have a feminine connotation. The words used in job descriptions can imply a preferred gender without us even realizing it, and as a result discourage the opposite gender from applying. See the Bias in job ads page under Research and Analysis for more details on the impacts of gendered wording.
The evidence underlying this tool comes from a research paper written by Danielle Gaucher, Justin Friesen, and Aaron C. Kay, titled Evidence That Gendered Wording in Job Advertisements Exists and Sustains Gender Inequality. Please see the Bias in job ads page under Research and Analysis for more in depth details.
When you upload or paste your job description, it is analyzed for gendered language. The full text of the description and the analysis are not saved in a database.
It's possible to use the tool on any body of text. It does seems like a reasonable assumption that gendered wording has affects in some other domains. However, the research on which our tool is based on only examined job descriptions.
