Inclusive Bathroom Signs

July 5, 2023

In today’s rapidly evolving society, inclusivity has become a central focus across various domains, including architecture, design, and social equality. One area where inclusivity has gained significant attention is the design of signage to promote inclusivity in the bathroom

Keep reading for the reasons WHY inclusive bathroom signs are so important and how YOUR organization can successfully cater to the needs of all.

Promoting Equality and Respect

Inclusive bathroom signs serve as powerful symbols of equality and respect. They send a clear message that all individuals, regardless of their gender identity, deserve equal access to safe and comfortable facilities. 

Addressing the Needs of ALL People

Such signage is a way to recognize and accommodate the needs of individuals who identify as transgender, non-binary, or gender non-conforming. Traditional gender-specific signs can be exclusionary and create discomfort or anxiety for those who do not identify within the binary gender system. By using inclusive signage, organizations actively support the rights and well-being of diverse individuals.

Inclusive Bathrooms for All Menstruators

Implementing Inclusive Sign Strategies

Policy and Education

In addition to designing inclusive bathroom signs, organizations should establish policies that explicitly support and protect individuals of all gender identities. Also, providing education and training to staff members and visitors about the importance of inclusivity and respectful behavior fosters a welcoming environment.

Placement and Visibility

Ensure that inclusive bathroom signs are strategically placed and easily visible. Consider mounting signs at an appropriate height, using contrasting colors to enhance visibility and providing clear directions to restrooms throughout your facility. This way, individuals can navigate the space confidently, knowing they can find inclusive bathrooms when needed.

Hi! I’m Claire. I founded Aunt Flow after getting my period in public without the supplies needed.

At 18 years old, I dedicated my life to developing a solution to ensure businesses and schools could sustainably provide quality period products, for free, in bathrooms. Our products are made with organic cotton and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact! Since 2021, we've donated over 5 MILLION period products to menstruators in need. I call this people helping people. PERIOD.®
