Description

Gender justice at work: Power, privilege, change

For well over a decade, organisations across a range of sectors have put significant effort into improving gender diversity in the workplace. With this has come a wave of catchphrases, with concepts like "leaning in," "exposing unconscious bias," and "repairing the leaky pipeline" commonly employed by businesses to address this issue. However, progress on women's employment equality remains slow and in some cases, intractable. So what makes it so difficult?

In our next Learn@Lunch presentation, Scientia Professor Louise Chappell will explore why gender justice in the workplace remains such an elusive goal. With a renewed focus on 'power politics', she will highlight the importance of understanding our approaches to power, and the privilege that stems from it. Using the political and construction sectors as examples, Professor Chappell will present a fresh approach to this longstanding issue, unpacking why tackling the advantage of men over the perceived deficits of women could be the key to driving transformative workplace change.
