Webinar: An Exploratory Journey into Gender and Type at Work
September 13, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm Australia/Sydney
Dr Gunilla Burrowes leads an exploratory journey into gender and type in the workplace.
How can understanding type help workplaces become gender neutral & more inclusive?
Our journey will start with an overview of the gender problem in the workplace and provide some definitions for our discussion.
Our path is in 3 parts; with your help we will investigate:
- 1. the judgment function differences
- 2. the impact of gender norms on individualization, and
- 3. type theory to explain gender differences.
