Town Hall: How to Elevate Yourself in a Male-Dominated Workplace (Los Angeles)

  • Cross Campus DTLA 800 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90017 United States (map)

Microaggressions, mansplaining, and harassment are among the daily obstacles women face in the workplace (and that's on top of trying to get paid what you deserve). These hindrances are multiplied when you're in an industry that skews male.

We don't have time to wait for the world to catch up.
In this Town Hall, we will focus on tactics to overcome these inevitable situations, how to prepare yourself before they even happen and strategies to keep on keeping on.

Key takeaways:

  • How to find your workplace allies (and be one!)
  • How to identify and react to various workplace aggressions
  • How to discuss, confront and defend workplace communication without fear of being derided as whiny, bitchy or aggressive
  • Loss of power and how to get it back

We know finding childcare can be hard (and expensive!) so you’re welcome to bring your kids. Feminism can never start too young.
