Personal Pronouns in Resume Writing
Presented by: Brandi Muñoz
Gender pronouns are an important part of communication. They take the place of nouns, such as names, and allow people to share information about themselves. This session will help writers bring awareness to the importance of respecting the preferred gender identity of clients and peers in the workplace. A person’s gender identity is no longer restricted to the sex they were assigned at birth. Understanding why gender pronouns are used to describe one’s preferred gender identification and where the pronouns should go on a resume will help to enable more inclusive writing practices.
Three key takeaways from this session include:
- What it means to be gender nonconforming.
- How to go about sharing your pronouns in a professional setting.
- How to list personal pronouns on a resume and other professional branding documents.
This one-hour recording from the 2021 Virtual Conference is $9.99 for NRWA members and $19.99 for nonmembers. It is not eligible for CEUs.
