Pronouns 101 – A Workshop for Faculty

PRONOUNS 101 – A WORKSHOP FOR FACULTY

Our understanding of gender—especially going beyond two binary options—has grown significantly over the last few years. Gender pronouns are an important part of one’s identity. Asking and correctly using someone’s pronouns is one of the most basic ways to show respect for their gender identity. When someone is referred to with the wrong pronoun, it can make them feel disrespected, invalidated, dismissed, or alienated (often all of the above). This workshop will help participants better understand gender identity, proper pronoun use, and the possible effects of misgendering.

The workshop is rescheduled for early Spring 2022 semester.

We look forward to seeing you! then.
