Recognising & Responding To Everyday Sexism

Facilitator: Anna Lee
Target group: All staff
Duration: 3.5hrs

Ever noticed that men and women may be treated differently in exactly the same circumstances? 

Sometimes this is due to outdated, sexist, conscious beliefs about the difference between men and women’s abilities, roles, responsibilities and potential. 

And sometimes it’s due to our unconscious system’s tendency to categorise people according to gender – which we have no idea it’s doing. As a result, no matter how ardent our conscious desire to treat everyone as individuals, gender often plays a significant role in how we assess, respond to and communicate with other human beings.  

 While gender equality has come a long way in recent years, gender can still play a big role in our personal and professional relationships, in our career decisions and in our self-belief and confidence. 

 In this highly interactive session you'll learn: 

  • how to identify – and respond constructively - to ‘Red Flags’ for sexism (both conscious and unconscious) in the workplace 
  • how to approach workplace interactions, decisions and relationships through a ‘gender lens’ 
  • what to do when you inadvertently make assumptions based on gender 
  • why challenging traditional masculine stereotypes is every bit as important as tackling traditionally feminine stereotypes.
