My small boutique firm had a few meh white guy associates leave in the last 6 months. I (the only female associate at the time I was hired) have the ear of the managing partner and got him to hire 3 outstanding female associates with stellar credentials. I'm manifesting a Renaissance!

I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would specify, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts?
