Epicene pronouns include both genders. In spoken American English, most speakers use they as the epicene or indefinite pronoun (a/an) in place of 'he' or 'she' as the epicene, when referring to a single person.

Examples:

Everyone loves their mother.

No one wants to take big risks with their money.
