For the Transgender Health Meet and Greet which we hosted recently, I leveraged my recently acquired photoshop skills to create nametags that support pronouns.
I’m embedding the template in multiple formats, with instructions below. The document is Creative Commons licensed like everything on this blog – use it, edit it, brand it, make sure it helps other people succeed in life. If you don’t use it to help other people succeed, then the license to use is immediately revoked.
I’ve written previously about why I’ve placed my pronouns on my business card and email sig. I and others encourage other health professionals to do the same:
Built for the Future: My business card includes my pronouns (yours should, too)
Instructions for use and download formats
- Photoshop (PSD) Format – For ultimate editing control, for you to insert in the label template of your choice. Save as JPG and find the label template of your choice, for example at Avery.com. Feel free to critique my photoshop skills, I’m always learning…
- PDF File: 5392 Name Badge 3×4 with Pronouns NonBranded – This is for 3 x 4 non-stick name badges, ready to print using template number 5392. These require badge holders. We prefer to use non-stick to prevent damage to clothing.
Print away, have markers or pens handy, and don’t stop at special events, use pronouns in all settings.
If you need any assistance, add a note in the comments. If you wouldn’t mind sharing your experience(s), I’d appreciate those too, in the comments or via twitter, @tedeytan. Thank you!
Cool name tag Ted – Ok to use the image in a PPT on LGBTQ cultural sensitivity?
Yes, please do! Whatever I have you can have. Thanks for helping the world learn to ❤️ better,
