The Pronouns Pledge

Best estimates suggest that around 1% of the general population may identify as trans (including non-binary), with just over 1% of students at Warwick self-defining as trans. Many more are gender non-conforming and/or challenge gender stereotypes and gendered expectations.

However, there is a lack of information (as well as misinformation) about gender expression and trans identities that often results in staff and students being misgendered, particularly through the use of incorrect gendered pronouns.

The good news? There are some simple actions you can take to improve the experience of trans and gender non-conforming people at Warwick!

We've created the Pronouns Pledge to make it as simple as possible to engage with inclusive best practice on pronouns, and to build a movement of people taking these steps together.

By taking the Pronouns Pledge you commit to these six simple actions:
