Pronoun Cards 
A shared Pride initiative

By displaying and using correct pronouns, we are all working together to create environments that are inclusive and safe for both staff and the patient populations we serve.

Pronoun cards are now available as an optional item for Shared Health staff. Cards are available in two lengths, for staff with regular ID badges and for those with profession cards who require a longer version. Please note that profession cards are not available through Shared Health at this time.

Below is a list of the pronoun cards currently available to staff:

  • SHE/HER 
  • HE/HIM
  • THEY/THEM
  • SHE/ELLE
  • SHE/THEY
  • HE/THEY
  • HE/IL

If you have filled out the Shared Health Pronoun Card Survey to pre-order your pronoun card, please watch your email for pick-up instructions, as they vary based on your location.

And there are people out there that will love you exactly as you are. -Brent Jason Intensive Care NurseI think of the evolution of gender and sexual identity as a metaphor, like a photograph.
