JONY: “Hi. My name is Jony and I use he/him pronouns.”
CONCHY: “Hi. And I’m Conchy and I use she/her pronouns.”
JONY: “And we’re here to talk about pronouns.
CONCHY: “What is a pronoun? A pronoun is how we identify ourselves, apart from our name, and it’s also how people refer to us in conversations.”
JONY: “Using the right pronouns is really simple way to affirm someone’s identity. It is a signal of acceptance and respect.”
CONCHY: “If it’s a signal of acceptance and respect, how do we go about creating a safe space for everybody?”
JONY: “That’s a good question. A really good way to do that is to use inclusive language. Instead of saying something like ‘hey guys,’ you can say ‘hey everyone’ or ‘hey team.’”
