GLSEN’s Pronoun guide is created to help anyone learn how to use people’s correct pronouns. Everyone in your school community should engage in learning, educating, and advocating for the inclusive use of pronouns for all.
The vast majority of people go by the pronouns sets “he/him” or “she/her.” A small but increasing number of people use “they/them” pronouns or another pronouns set. Learn how to share your pronouns.
While most people are well-intentioned, making the wrong assumption about someone’s gender identity or expression, and, by extension their pronouns, can be insulting, harmful, and, if done repeatedly, constitute workplace bias or harassment.
