Gender Dynamics in the Workplace:
How to Create a Place of Equality

presented by Nada Lena


It’s no secret that the past two years have presented some major shifts regarding gender in the workplace, including debates about the gender pay gap and sexual harassment, and movements such as the #metoo, #seeher, and #timesup campaigns. Navigating these gender dynamics and issues becomes increasingly more complicated in this ever-changing landscape and is often overlooked, not by choice, but simply due to a lack of resources, support, and understanding. The extremities that have been brought to the forefront through public media have created discord and fear amongst many corporations and employees.

In this training, we take a deep-dive approach to discussing the psychological and professional differences between genders and how we can work together to bridge the gap and support all parties in the workplace. We will bring to the forefront the strengths and struggles men, women, and gender individuals encounter and present a 360° approach to understanding and engaging with one other with compassion, respect, empathy, and ease.

Key Learning Objectives

  1. Facilitate and create a safe conversation around gender issues, allowing all staff members to build an understanding and empathy for one another.
  2. Understand key differences cognitively, emotionally, and behaviorally.
  3. Develop an environment of safety, comfort and togetherness around gender issues and conversations.
  4. Eliminate assumptions and fears within the company that are surrounding today's current societal, political, and workplace climate.
