The National Education Association will create space in all individuals’ name tags, badges, and IDs for the individuals’ pronouns. The individuals’ pronouns will only be left off at the individual’s request. This space will first appear at the 2020 NEA Leadership Summit and will continue forward from there. We will create fields within NEA360 to indicate pronouns. By doing this, it will give locals information to add pronouns to their membership forms and to be more inclusive. We will create fields within NEA360 to indicate pronouns.

Rationale/Background

This NBI supports the LGBTQ+ community by normalizing gender pronouns.  Normalizing this across all genders and binaries builds a safe, respectful space for individuals and will give locals information regarding pronouns about their membership creating inclusivity at the local level.
