Event Details

Through the recent #MeToo movement and ongoing discussions around gender pay gap, increasing attention has been paid to gender inequality in all facets of professional life. Gender discrimination and microaggressions towards women in STEM are prevalent, but most do not recognize these situations or know how to respond to them. In this MASS AWIS workshop, lead by Audrey Grace the Director of Diversity and Inclusion in the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion at Northeastern University and Sarah Beaulieu an expert on sexual harassment/violence prevention and training, MASS AWIS is offering two complementary approaches to increasing safety and respect in the STEM academic and industry workplace. You’ll learn how to engage in the kinds of conversation that can prevent these microaggressions from taking place, and gain specific skills to respond to gender bias and microaggressions directed towards women.

Join MASS AWIS in learning to:

  • Become aware of your own unconscious bias
  • Be observant and notice reactions
  • Interrupt microaggressions when witnessing them
  • Build skills in your team or within your organization to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and violence
