1.12.23 OWIMS Book Club (Session II- Zoom option): The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women's Dead End Work
This event will take place live, virtual via Zoom
“The No Club” started when five women, crushed by endless to-do lists, banded together over a bottle of wine to get their work lives under control. Running faster than ever, they still trailed behind their male colleagues. And so, they vowed to say “no” to requests that pulled them away from the work that mattered most to their careers. This book reveals how their subsequent groundbreaking research uncovered that women everywhere are unfairly burdened with “non-promotable work,” a problem that requires individual and institutional solutions to level the gender inequities in the workplace.
This session is open to all faculty, staff and trainees.
After participating in this event, learners should be better able to:
1.Practice making small, yet significant, changes to their workload
2. Resolve common workplace issues such as poor performance and mismatched expectations
3. Design and implement strategies for initiatives that rebalance the service work across genders
