Say My Name

Say My Name

About the project

The Say My Name project, led by Professor Jane Bryan and the Community Values Education Programme (CVEP), promotes respectful interactions around names.

Creating a culture of inclusivity within a diverse learning community means developing practical skills and systems at both individual and institutional level.

This will ensure that students and staff can use the name they prefer and have that name respected.


It can feel good to be called by name.

Create an inclusive email signature and profile to build a culture where everyone is called by their name.

Step one: Create an audio name badge

Step two: Create a name pronunciation guide

Step two: Embed in your email signature/profile along with your pronouns
