Stay Out of Your Own Way: How Gendered Language Threatens Your Success

This one and a half hour, interactive workshop will highlight the ways in which women have traditionally undersold their skills and provide opportunities for participants to self- reflect on their
own experiences. We will discuss the social expectations put on women, which can complicate women’s desire to do self- promotion. Through analyzing the descriptors of women’s professional accomplishments, body language, and verbal inflections, participants will be encouraged to investigate improved ways of communicating professionally.
This program counts towards a She Leads OHIO requirement (the Women’s Center’s professional leadership program). For more information, please visit our website.
