Pushing back against everyday sexism

Academic or specialist Other

This workshop seeks to increase PhD’s and postdocs’ skills in identifying and countering potential negative effects of sexism in their lives. During the workshop, we will practice techniques and approaches to respond to various professional situations (including those brought by participants). The focus will primarily be on addressing bias encountered in other people; however, we will also explore how we have each internalized some beliefs
that are not necessarily coherent with our professed views.
The workshop will follow a 3-part structure:
• It’s still alive! – Recognizing and challenging sexism in your life (micro-aggressions,
intersectionality, implicit bias, mansplaining)
• Sisterhood – Finding mentors and supporting others (amplifying, spotlighting, networking,
avoiding anti-mentors)
• Self-Care – Choosing your battles and developing your internal compass (self-confidence, legal resources, work/life balance)

This workshop is resolutely participative and will employ multiple strategies to promote personal reflection, small group discussion and collaborative problem solving.
