Twitter chats have proven to be effective tools offering many benefits—particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic—including building a strong sense community, learning from others, and providing a safe space for meaningful dialogue.
Please join EDI and the SGM Research Office for this Twitter chat on how to better use pronouns for more effective allyship using #NIHPronounAlly. With the assistance of our guest diversity experts, we will moderate a one-hour discussion to bring awareness and education around the topic of SGM pronoun use and allyship.
