Add pronouns on your profile in Microsoft 365


You can now add personal pronouns into your Microsoft 365 profile.


What Is This?

Correctly using someone’s pronoun is one of the most basic ways to show that we value being inclusive and respectful.

When we are referred to with the wrong pronoun, it may make us feel disrespected, invalidated, and alienated. In a hybrid multicultural workplace, the simple act of using the right pronouns for one another can help build trust and improve communication among colleagues.

You now have the option to include them on your profile card.  Pronouns on your profile are visible to people at NSCC.
