The Gender Penalty: Turning obstacles into opportunities for women at work with Anneli Blundell
9th May @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AESTFree
Work is a game originally developed by men, for men. Though the players have changed, the rules to succeed have not. When today’s talented women play like men, they can get punished for not being ‘ladylike’, and when they play like women, they can get punished for not being ‘leaderlike’. Welcome to the gender penalties that sideline women from the game of work.
In this talk, we explore the invisible work place dynamics that hold women back and propel men forward and why well-meaning career advice, seldom works for women (‘more executive presence anyone?’).
We address the taboo topic of when we need to change ourselves to fit in (and stay in the game) and when we need to challenge the system instead (to create a new game).
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
– Stand out without stepping on toes to get ahead in your career
– Get what you want without compromising who you are
– Make your mark without becoming someone you’re not
