Gender Identity and Pronouns

My name is Christel and my pronouns are she and her. Based on my name, or the way I look, most people assume those are my pronouns. But such assumptions aren’t always correct and therefore they can send a message that people have to look a certain way to show their gender. Plus, a person’s sense of their gender may or may not correspond to their sex assigned at birth. Normalizing the sharing of pronouns creates an inclusive environment. A growing number of companies are supporting this practice.
