Add a bio to your profile to share information about yourself with other GitHub users. With the help of @mention's and emoji, you can include information about where you currently or have previously worked, what type of work you do, or even what kind of coffee you drink.

Tip: When you @mention an organization, only those that you're a member of will autocomplete. You can still @mention organizations that you're not a member of, like a previous employer, but the organization name won't autocomplete for you.

Completed bio

If you have the activity overview section enabled for your profile and you @mention an organization you're a member of in your profile bio, then that organization will be featured first in your activity overview. For more information, see "Showing an overview of your activity on your profile."
