G&A Institute encourages our employees to include their personal pronouns in their email signatures. You may be wondering why.

First, it is a quick and easy way to demonstrate our commitment to inclusion and to express our support for transgender and non-binary people.

Second, it tells everyone we communicate with that we value a diverse and inclusive world where all people are respected. We believe in helping trans and non-binary employees to affirm their gender identities. The use of personal pronouns also helps reduce confusion regarding names, especially if they are gender neutral or culturally diverse, without an easily recognized gender.

Finally, this can be a conversation starter that signals our desire to serve as allies and to educate new and potential allies about gender identity, gender expression and gender diversity.
