Currently the gender identifier field that is native to CERVIS, reads: Volunteer Gender, with the option of choosing Male or Female. In order to be inclusive and respectful of all our volunteers, it would be great if an organization was given the choice of turning the aforementioned field off and using an alternate field that read something like, "What pronouns do you use?" with options that include she/her/hers, he/him/his, & they/them/theirs. While gender is not a variable for most of our volunteer assignments, as a theatre it is important for us to know of our performance volunteers what type roles they are interested in being considered. This type information cannot easily be collected via Custom Volunteer Profile Fields because of the way I am currently using those fields to collect information. Also since the gender field is a native field in CERVIS already, it would be more equitable to allow the field to be expanded to include all volunteers.
Thanks for your time and attention.
