Inclusive Email Signatures
Our email signatures can help to create an inclusive culture at Warwick. They can signal our respect for pronouns and names and also provide practical help to others.
Step one: Names
To signal the importance of names and to help others get our names right, consider normalising the use of audio name badges and phonetic guides in email signatures and profiiles helps ensure that they are common practice for all and not just for those with names that are more commonly mispronounced or avoided.
- Create a phonetic guide to your name using #MyNameIs - Name Pronunciation Tool - Race Equality Matters or NameShouts - Pronounce Names Right.
- Create an audio name badge using these instructions.
- Embed phonetic guides and audio name badges in your email signature using the guide below and in your SuccessFactors profiles (staff).
