How do we navigate the personal pronoun conundrum?

03/22/2021

Q: “We are a small nonprofit, with fewer than 50 full-time employees. Are we required by law to include preferred pronouns in our organization’s email signature template? Are employees forced to refer to their binary colleagues by the preferred pronouns? It becomes more stressful in communication (especially auditability) when an employee identifies as binary and their preferred pronouns are “they/them,” and the employee consistently reminds everyone. I recently ended a meeting because it was unproductive because of these personal pronouns. It was difficult for every to stay on task.” – Phyllis, Texas
