What are your preferred pronouns?
TEDxUofM's top priority is inclusivity. Our conferences are a place for people to share ideas, change, grow, and learn. One step we're making to get closer to inclusivity is perferred pronouns. Perferred pronouns are which third-person pronouns you use. He/him means you prefer to be referred to as a male, she/her as a female, and they/them as nonbinary declarations. If none of the below options fit (e.g. you prefer no pronouns) let us know. Let's make April 1st great. For more information click here.
To break gender assignment, by default we're adding your preferred pronouns to your name tag. If you'd like to opt out of this, please click the checkbox below.

What is one of your unique quirks? (i.e. A game you play in your head, a strange habit, or a goofy preference)
How much has your life changed in the past year? Please select one answer and explain.
What are you curious about? (NOTE: Your response will be listed on your nametag, so keep your response to a few words.)
So here's the thing: we really don't like you. Like, we can't get it into your head enough how much we would relish in your fall. But, we need money. We need you to come to this conference, which makes us feel gross, because, you? At OUR conference? Talk about a terrible event! LOL. Anyways, help us change our minds. How? Completely reinvent yourselves so we can maybe handle your presense for a couple hours. So, the final question: What is one aspect of yourself, your life, or your world that you would like to preserve?
