Need a gender-neutral greeting for a group?
As you are planning your first day of class, start out in a way that makes all students feel valued and included. Joan Klinkner and I attended an amazing conference this summer on Gender Creative Early Learners. Our keynote speaker Jess Dallman shared this business card with the group. Instead of saying Ladies or Men etc try a gender neutral term or phrase like “Good morning everyone,” “And for you” or “Welcome in today.” This is a simple change to making everyone fee valued and acknowledged.
