Gender Equity in the Office
Join WCL and speaker Jade Aguilar for an interactive workshop that will explore some of the hidden gender inequities in the typical professional office place. We will discuss gendered language, unconscious bias, and how workplace structures disproportionately negatively impact women as professionals. We will end by discussing strategies of resistance and ways to navigate the gendered workplace.
