'You don't have to hide who you are.'

When I got "my pronouns are …" pins, I immediately posted on instagram because of how excited I was. One of my friends commented, "Yassss! How awesome!! I’ve never seen a company do anything like this!" 

Allen is a unit clerk who supports several areas within women's and children's services: the pediatric and neonatal intensive care units, labor and delivery, the mother-baby unit and general pediatrics. 

Allen says one thing that surprises people when he tells them he works at Rush is how genuinely inclusive and caring the community is.

"When I got 'my pronouns are …' pins, I immediately posted on Instagram because of how excited I was," Allen says. "One of my friends commented, 'Yassss! How awesome!! I’ve never seen a company do anything like this!'"

Allen chose to work at Rush, he says, because of how truly inclusive the culture is for people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ employees, "which are my two primary identifications."

Allen adds: "At Rush, you don’t have to hide who you are. You can be who you truly are. You won’t be judged and you won’t be interrogated. You will be accepted."
