International Pronouns Day

International Pronouns Day is October 17, 2018. This international commemorative day seeks to make asking, sharing, and respecting personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. To fully understand why pronouns are important we must be more conscious of language, concepts and queer cultures.

To support our community develop a foundation of knowledge, support non gender conforming members of our academic community, and celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities JFKU will be holding awareness activities during the time leading up to International Pronouns Day, and on October 17, 2018. Presentations will be held for faculty and staff in the September Staff and Faculty senate meetings. A brown bag lunch seminar will be held for faculty, staff and students on Wednesday, October 17, 2018. More information will be shared about planned activities in the coming weeks.
