As you all know, one of the top priorities for Space is that it is welcoming for everyone. We think that showcasing the gender diversity of Space’s awesome user base is a great way for people of all identities to feel safe.
The Learning and Evaluation team at the Foundation has helpfully provided the survey question they are currently using for gender:
What is your current gender identity? Select all that apply.
Different identity (please state)
I prefer not to say ◯
For our case, Space admins were thinking these options could appear in a drop-down menu on the user profile, where the user can select all that apply. Selecting a gender identity would be optional, so we can remove “I prefer not to say”. The information could be displayed in the user’s profile, potentially after the “Name” field.
Curious to know what you think about this. Do you agree with the concept? Is there anything missing?
