EasyBib put out a great blog post on this very topic. They explain how to avoid referring to gender when possible, how to utilize gender neutral pronouns, and how to refer to gender traditional occupations or concepts (freshman, congressman) in gender neutral terms (first-year student, congressional representatives). You'll also be offered an introduction to "spivak pronouns," which is a set of modern variations of pronouns that are gender-neutral. Take the time to read this one!
