Looseness allows you to list pronouns directly under your job title


Slack now introduces a new field for profiles that allows you to list pronouns directly under your name and job title. Once completed, pronouns appear both in the mini-profiles you see when you click on someone’s name and in the entire profile.

Note that your Slack profile may already have a pronoun field if your administrator has created a custom field for your company’s employees. (When I went to check Edge Loose, I found we already had one.) Slack says administrators can continue to use that custom field or decide to introduce a new one, although the new separate pronoun field has the advantage of being more visible on your profile.

This is how the pronouns appear in Slack.

However, this new field is hidden by default – Slack administrators must compile it for everyone in the Slack workspace. If you are an administrator and want to do so, here is Slack’s quick guide.

Slack is associated with a few other applications so people can add pronouns to profiles, such as Instagram (who just got them last week), OkCupidand Lyft.
