Gender-sensitive language
The Joanneum Universal Museum follows a policy of equality in linguistic references to men and women. Unless the text specifically refers to male or female persons, linguistic formulations are gender-neutral or abstract. Abbreviated forms, e.g. Besucher/innen in German, are to be taken as short for the full expression (in this case, Besucherinnen und Besucher or Besucher und Besucherinnen). Such abbreviations are frequently used for reasons of space and convenience, in accordance with the prevailing rules of German orthography.
