Event description

Description

Please join us for an incredibly timely workshop/discussion on Language and Gender in the Workplace with Abby Bajuneimi, PhD.

The ways women are talked about and how they talk about themselves is coded into culture and language.

In this workshop, I explain how language becomes part of "common sense," or shared background/cultural knowledge. I illustrate how gender bias is implicitly and explicitly reinforced by language, intentional or not, by providing examples and activities to uncover hidden (or not) biases that even women hold about other women. I include some strategies to become more mindful of those biases as well as strategies for changing them if desired. Finally, I also include some ways to think about how to support and empower fellow women at work when they see subtle or overt sexism happening.

This is an interactive workshop, so please be prepared to write, think, and share! Please bring your laptop if you prefer to type.

Snacks and beverages will be provided, and the location is one block off of the lightrail.

Space is limited to 30 people, so register today!
