How Women Can Turn the Double Standard into a Triple Threat
Tuesday, April 17th

Many women encounter a double standard in the workplace. The typical tools for advancement—directness, self-promotion, and aggression—are often interpreted negatively when used by a woman. She is often forced to retreat into the safety of more docile and demure “feminine” behavior. This workshop will identify why this happens and how to manage and defy stereotypical biases by employing a variety of approaches.  It will also explore the impact of personal relationships, and how outside issues, obligations, and expectations can often affect your style at work.


How to Leverage Your Gender to Succeed In Business
Monday, April 30th

This workshop will teach women how to use both real and perceived gender differences to succeed in business.  Through class discussion, video clips, handouts and interactive exercises, learn to turn perceived disadvantages into competitive advantages that will help you climb the career ladder.
