Salesforce has tucked alternative gender ID tags into its conference attendee bags

You know how Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff has been using his visibility as a corporate CEO to speak out against controversial state-level legislation targets LGBT people?

Well, the company wants to set itself as an example of how to be inclusive. It’s holding its massive annual tech conference in San Francisco this week and, to that end, has included name tags like we’ve never seen at a big tech conference before. 

The stickers allow attendees to add their preferred gender pronouns to their lanyard name tags. Attendees can add stickers that indicate “She/Her,” “He/Him,” “They/Them,” or “Ask me” should they feel so inclined.

We don’t know how many attendees are using the badges. But some of them have noticed.
