New in Zoom: Add Your Pronouns

A zoom meeting is about to begin. The participant is prompted to choose whether or not to share their pronouns.

As of October 26, the University of Minnesota’s Zoom service offers the Pronouns feature, which enables you to enter your personal pronouns directly to your Zoom user profile.

When you add pronouns to your Zoom profile, they are visible to your Zoom contacts as part of your Zoom profile card in the Zoom desktop client and mobile app. 

You can choose when or if your pronouns are displayed 

  • during a Zoom meeting where you are the host or you join as a participant; and
  • during a webinar where you are the host or a panelist. 

Note: Webinar attendees’ pronouns are never visible. Unsure what the difference is? See Webinar vs. Meeting comparison.

Update Your Profile 

Your Profile page in your UMN Zoom account allows you to view and customize information about your user account in Zoom.
