“Please introduce yourself, where you’re from, and what your pronouns are.”
You have probably attended a meeting that began with this introductory prompt. Maybe you registered for an event, like our upcoming 2019 Funders Institute, and saw that we asked for your gender pronouns as part of the registration process.
If you’ve wondered about why we should care about others’ gender pronouns or why they’re important in ending homelessness, this webinar is for you. We’ll talk about why everyone should care about gender pronouns and why they are important to achieving equity and ending homelessness. As part of this webinar, we’ll also cover some frequently asked questions, like how to ask for one’s pronouns (not “preferred pronouns”) and why the singular “they” is not grammatically incorrect.
Participants will walk away knowing more about why caring about gender pronouns is important in ending homelessness and how you can help advance equity with your increased understanding.
During this webinar, we’ll hear from:
- Michelle Blassou, Program Associate, True Colors United
- Lauren Samblanet, Membership and Program Coordinator, Funders Together to End Homelessness
FYI: We plan to record this webinar live and edit it into a short video as a resource for Funders Together members to refer back to and share with their colleagues moving forward. This recording and editing process will not affect participants, though we may build in some short pauses or scripted language that will help us in the editing process later.
Please note: This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations. If you have questions about participating, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs, at stephanie@FundersTogether.org
