Pronouns, just like personal names, are connected to a person's identity. Gender pronouns are words that an individual (co-worker, customer, vendor, etc.) would like others to use when talking to or about them. The most commonly used pronouns are “he, him, his” and “she, her, hers.” People who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender nonconforming may choose to use pronouns that don't conform to binary male/female gender categorizations, such as "they, them, theirs."
