LGBT History Month 2022

Here’s why I include pronouns in my email signature

Inclusive language creates inclusive workplaces, and by sharing mine it makes it easier for someone who is gender non-conforming to share their pronouns.

Gender pronouns are words that a person uses to describe themselves or would like others to describe them.  For cisgender people, the common pronouns are she/her/hers or he/him/his. However, people who do not conform to the binary male/female categorisation may use they/them/theirs.

By including my pronouns in my email I hope to bring awareness and demonstrate inclusivity internally and externally and show consideration and respect that pronouns are an important part of gender identity.

For 2022 the theme of the month is "The Arc is Long".

enei are celebrating LGBT History Month this February! In honour of LGBT+ History Month in February, we've partnered with
Time for Inclusive Education to host a webinar on tackling prejudice towards the LGBT+ community with education.

How employers can support LGBT History Month

  • Be Inquisitive: Attend sessions on LGBT History Month, take the time to research, and share your findings with others. Start a mentoring programme, and task yourself to learn something new every day.
  • Share experiences: Write a blog on what LGBT History Month means to you, profile LGBT staff, share who your role models are and why.
