Advancing Research 2020

They / Them

This is cross-posted from the ZS intranet (which we call ZSpace), where I write episodically about issues of interest to the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. It’s been lightly edited for an external audience.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary recently announced that their word of the year is THEY.  You can read their article on the topic here – Word of the Year 2019 | They | Merriam-Webster .  Here is a brief excerpt:
