Today, Wednesday, October 21, is this year's International #PronounsDay! Founded by the LGBT Equity Center's Shige Sakurai, International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.
Please join in the celebration by posting on your social media with the hashtag #PronounsDay, sharing your pronouns on your personal social channels, and/or starting a conversation with colleagues on how to be more inclusive around pronouns. Try introducing yourself with your pronouns today and make it a habit.
We also have some fun virtual swag on offer—pronoun profile pics and Zoom backgrounds—at go.umd.edu/pronouns2020. That's open to anyone to download and use, so please feel free to share widely!
