GBH 2023 Annual Report

In 2022, what mattered most was reconnecting—in person and across platforms. We found new ways to reach our audiences, wherever they are, with our storytelling. And we worked to innovate, listen and expand public media to make it even more responsive to what matters to you. GBH built bridges that connected people with ideas, fresh perspectives and greater insight, building trust and ensuring closer bonds within our community. We invite you to explore Building Bridges, our look back at the highlights of 2022.

GBH 2022 Annual Report

For everyone, 2021 was a year of challenges and constant reassessment of priorities and focus. GBH used this time as an opportunity to further change the ways we make media and engage with our communities. We consciously broadened our perspectives, questioned our assumptions and expanded our frames of reference. We have discovered people, topics, insights and exchanges that we may have overlooked in the past. We invite you to explore Widening the Lens, our 2022 Annual Report. Find out how we collaborated with new creators, who delivered more diverse content and viewpoints.

Inclusive Language Guidelines

Words matter. They shape our perceptions. Words can make the difference between forging trust or creating distance. Language can also be used to indicate who is included and who is not. Our language must continually evolve with our understanding and acceptance of diverse groups of people. As a vital resource for news and information, as well as educational and cultural programming, GBH has an obligation to uphold the highest standard for inclusive language.

This booklet aims to guide everyone in the quest to communicate accurately and be culturally responsive to all, signaling to people that we honor their dignity.

The Guidelines contains chapters devoted to race, ethnicity and nationality; sexual orientation; gender identity and gender expression; gender inclusivity; disability; age and family status; substance use; and veteran and military status.

The language in this guide may not apply to every individual, therefore it is critical to take personal preferences of story subjects into account. Language use and terminology is constantly changing. This guide does not cover every situation so please refer to the links provided to other sources to get more information. This guide will be updated regularly.
