Pronouns and names are not the only parts of language marked by gender. Our everyday language is often gendered. By shifting this language to be more inclusive, we can respect and acknowledge the gender identities of all people. Always be mindful of your assumptions and consider gender-neutral ways of communicating the same phrases. These tips are especially important in instances where you are referring to a general audience or don’t know the gender of the people you are speaking to.
