As an organistion we started our Rainbow inclusion initiative in 2018. Mid 2018 our first goal was to ensure that no one in our organisation was mis-gendered. After consultation we decided to add people’s personal pronouns to our official email signature template which made us the first government agency to ask our employees and contractors (anyone with a Stats NZ email address) to include their personal pronouns in all electronic communications going internally and externally.
