As another step towards full inclusivity at the University, we would like to encourage people to include their gender pronoun on their e-mail signature. Listing pronouns helps remove another barrier for our non-binary and trans communities, which is why it's important that people include their pronouns on their profiles as well.
When people include their pronouns in their email signatures it helps normalise the practice and is an easy way to prevent misgendering. It also helps demonstrate the point that whether someone is cis or trans, their pronouns should never be assumed.
You can also update your surname in your Zoom profile to include your pronouns and this is another way to demonstrate our commitment to full inclusivity.
