Where do we use pronouns?
It is important to ask everyone what their pronouns are to not create environments where only trans, nonbinary, and/or intersex people are expected to share their pronouns; asking only people you perceive to be members of these communities can mark them as “other.”
The University of Essex encourages all staff and students to put their pronouns in their email signature with a link to this guide:
Pronouns: they/them/theirs [you would insert your pronouns here]

We also encourage all staff and students to put their pronouns on their Zoom profile name.
