Usage of gender pronoun

Writing English in a gender-inclusive fashion is hard. In our writing, we decided to achieve this by making specific roles of a specific gender. We feel this improved the writing as it also makes it clearer who the pronoun is referring back to.

We chose gender for the roles randomly and ended up with:

  • Product Owner, Scrum Master use the pronoun she.
  • Management, team members use the pronoun he.
