Adding personal pronouns to your email signature is an easy way to incorporate diverse, equitable and inclusive practices into your everyday and it takes two minutes to set up.
Why are personal pronouns important?
“In English, whether we realize it or not, people frequently refer to us using pronouns when speaking about us. Often, when speaking of a singular human in the third person, these pronouns have a gender implied — such as “he” to refer to a man/boy or “she” to refer to a woman/girl. These associations are not always accurate or helpful” (pronouns.org)
Why should I consider sharing my pronouns?
“Using someone’s correct personal pronouns is a way to respect them and create an inclusive environment, just as using a person’s name can be a way to respect them” (pronouns.org).
