Prounouns are essential for conveying care, respect for others, and creating an environment of safety for everyone. Pronouns are not preferred. They are essential.
Everyone has pronouns that are unique to them. Some people may use one set of pronouns (e.g., she/her/hers) whereas others may use several pronouns (e.g., she/they).
We must avoid assumptions and preconceptions about an individual's pronouns, based on their appearance, voice or name. Taking a moment, to check in with others about their pronouns, or providing opportunities for individuals to share their pronouns is effortless and an important way to express respect and consideration for others.
