Training Overview

What pronouns do you prefer?

Learn how to handle gender in the workplace.

COVID-19 has put issues of safety in the workplace under a microscope, and mental safety is no exclusion. In July, a Pew Research Center survey found that 42% of Americans know someone who is transgender, and about a quarter of the people surveyed know someone who uses gender-neutral pronouns, such as “they/them.” Your team members can no longer be classified as only males or females; today, many people do not fit within the traditional gender dichotomy.

You need to ensure employees of all genders feel safe so they can thrive at work. Even in supportive environments, many transgender and nonbinary individuals can still expect uncomfortable conversations. It starts during the candidate experience. Small tweaks can lead to better communication for everyone—whether you’re transgender or simply someone with a name that could be mistaken for a different gender between different languages, cultures, or generations.

  • What are pronouns? How should you use them appropriately?
  • How can you practice pronouns to avoid getting them wrong?
  • How can you build belonging in the candidate experience?
  • In what ways can your organization use more inclusive language?
