During introductions, you will be asked to share your name and pronouns. Your pronouns are the words people will use to refer to you. Using the correct name and pronouns - including the correct pronunciation - is an essential part of treating others with respect. If someone doesn’t use pronouns or you aren’t sure, stick to their name.
Not familiar with pronouns? Practice! Pronouns can be a tongue-twister. Practice introducing yourself with your name and pronouns until you can do so confidently. Practice using they/them pronouns for others or not using pronouns at all!
