Guide for Zoom Meeting Hosts
At UCLA Health, we leverage Zoom for web and video conferencing. As we move towards communicating more frequently through online meetings and online training/instruction, it is important for us to commit to being good hosts and attendees. Whether we are in person or online, let’s commit to uphold CICARE and Cultural North Star values.

Show your Video
Use the built-in feature to share your video. This helps build relationships and provides a way to share non-verbal communication cues.
Make sure your full name is displayed in the participant panel so the other attendees know who you are. If you called in using your join, use the participant ID to associate your phone number with your login. If you are in a large meeting, or with unfamiliar attendees, say your name when you start to speak.
Adding pronouns to your profile
You can also add and share your preferred pronouns within your Zoom profile so that it is displayed along your name in meetings. Learn how to add pronouns to your profile →
