Use the correct gender or neutralize the context with words that incorporate both sexes:
"the best person (or candidate) for the job" rather than "the best man for the job"
"department or committee chair" rather than "chairman" or "chairwoman" Note: If referring to a specific individual associated with a business or organization outside of the University, check to see if that person has a preference.
"supervisor" rather than "foreman"
In cases where pronouns include both genders, use the plural, if appropriate:
"Students should see their advisors," not "Each student should see his or her advisor."
