Michelle P. King - The Fix: Overcome the Invisible Barriers That Are Holding Women Back at Work — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, March 5, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Director of Inclusion at Netflix and host of the weekly podcast, The Fix, King has learned from nearly twenty years of working with Fortune 500 companies as a gender equality expert that most workplaces are designed for men by men. This means that women—simply because they are women—don’t match employers’ preconceived notions of the ideal worker—they’re not promoted not because they aren’t good enough, but because they aren’t men. Seeing this “gender denial” as the biggest obstacle to women’s advancement at work, King analyses and proposes ways to change the hidden sexism and invisible barriers that hold women back, prevent men from becoming more emotionally aware, and keep workplaces from working for everyone.
