Race/Ethnicity and Gender Identities
Below are several questions related to gender, race, and ethnicity. You may notice that some of these questions are repeated, once as “choose one” and again as “choose all that apply.” This is for two reasons: First, while some people might self-identify as one answer within a category, others might self-identify as several. Second, we want to honor how you self-identify and allow for broader categories that protect the anonymity of participants in smaller or under-represented groups.
While we attempt to have lists that are both representative and expansive, we know that our lists are not inclusive of all responses. Please use the open-ended responses areas to help us continue to best represent the diversity of our clients.
Gender is a category we use all the time, but can actually refer to several different socially constructed categories such as Gender Identity (man, cis, trans, woman, genderqueer, etc.), Gender Expression (e.g. masculine, feminine, neutral), and Sex (e.g. male, female, intersex, etc.).
