Using someone’s correct personal pronouns is a way to respect them and create an inclusive environment, just as using a person’s name can be a way to respect them. [Source]
We want our Doc Gallery to be such an environment, and to make it easier to use the correct pronouns when describing Makers and their published docs. That’s why we’ve added an optional field in your Maker Profile to indicate your pronouns. It can be difficult to ascertain someone’s gender identity from one profile photo, so with the addition of pronouns you can appropriately say things like, “I really love Glenn’s docsーhave you seen his Animal Crossing guides?” or “Elly’s Virtual Cook-off Doc is great; she really helped me and my friends stay connected through food!”
If you would like to add your pronouns to your Maker Profile:
- Login to Coda and visit your profile at coda.io/@[your_username]
- Click ‘Edit profile’
- Input your pronouns
- Click ‘Save’
It might be a small change, but we hope this is a positive step in continuing to support all Makers in an inclusive and engaging community in the Doc Gallery.
