Can we make community event descriptions more inclusive?

Can we make community event descriptions, invitations and registration processes more inclusive?

Some ideas from an event I hosted last year with Butter Community (An Exclusive Experiment for Inclusive Participation):


🌞 Make sure your event description is easy to understand and free of jargon.

  • Use simple language, and consider adding a translation option for non-native speakers.
  • Ensure that your registration form is user-friendly, with clear instructions and an accessible layout.
  • If possible, provide alternatives for those with visual or hearing impairments.


✨ Emphasize the importance of diverse perspectives in your event description.

  • Encourage people from different backgrounds, industries, and experiences to attend.
  • Clearly state that your event is a safe space where everyone is welcome, and outline any measures taken to ensure a comfortable and inclusive environment.


🌜 Not everyone can commit to attending an event at a specific time or engage in the same way.

  • Provide multiple time slots, and consider offering recordings or summaries for those who cannot attend live.
  • Mention various ways participants can contribute, such as through chat, breakout sessions, or asynchronous discussion boards.

What else?

What’s one thing you can change in your community or event invitation now to make it more inclusive?
