[EVENT] Dismissive and Domineering? Communicating as a Woman – Event!
“Dismissive and domineering”? The perils and pitfalls of communicating as a woman.
Drawing on psychological research and her early experiences as a professional, Sophie will discuss some of the barriers women face in being taken seriously at work. How are confidence, doubt, and failures shown by a woman interpreted by colleagues? What unnoticed aspects of everyday interactions might be working against us? And do we have to choose between being liked and being listened to?
