Now loading… pronouns in Teams 

Referring to someone by their correct pronoun is a simple way to show respect for each other and build an inclusive environment. The option to add pronouns to Northeastern profiles is coming this month and is a perfect way to make pronouns visible to the rest of the Northeastern community in Microsoft Teams and Outlook. Once this feature is live, add or change your preferred pronouns in Microsoft 365 for others to see. It’s completely optional. You may also add pronouns to your email signature and Zoom profile.
