Women in Science - Talk and Power - Who Gets Heard and Why
This workshop will examine the ‘rules of the game’ determining success or failure in a largely male-dominated environment. Routine examples from the working environment will demonstrate those communication strategies and behaviours – typically seen as masculine or feminine – that can drive a career up or down.
Participants will be given strategies to use these differences to their advantage and tactics to avoid the pitfalls so as to be able to manoeuvre around career hurdles, and try them out in active simulations of examples from the workplace. They will also learn how to parry likely buzzwords, clichés and put-downs, and discuss effective strategies in thought and action to counter tricky career situations.
The workshop will take place online in an interactive format.
