Set your pronouns in Identity.UW. If you choose, you can display your pronouns in UW systems such as Canvas, MyUW, MyUW class list, and Zoom.

Pronoun Visibility
Adding your pronouns in Identity.UW means you are making them public and available to other UW systems as one of the attributes of your UW identity.

International Pronouns Day

Celebrate gender identity and respectful pronoun use on International Pronouns Day, which “seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.” Demonstrate your support throughout the year by using pronouns respectfully. Doing so cultivates a safer, more inclusive, and welcoming community for everyone, regardless of gender identity or expression. Here are several ways to do so:

  • Introduce yourself with your pronouns
  • Practice the use of gender-neutral pronouns
  • Rehearse how you recover from mistakes (we all make them!)
  • Add your pronouns to your email signature
  • Share on social media using #HuskyExperience #PronounsDay
