Gender Justice Series: Breaking Down Barriers to Gender Justice in the Workplace

RNYCS Student Researchers
1:00pm-2:00pm ET
RSVP for Zoom Link

This session is intended to drive local change on key and pressing gender issues brought into sharp relief by COVID-19. The session will ask questions about how to strengthen womxn’s capacities and networks, while reshaping the structures of their work to better enable womxn to thrive in the workplace and beyond it. Taskforce members will highlight recommendations for key structures and systems that affirm womxn’s work rights, including their access to and control of power and resources. The goal of the session is to contribute to policies and programs that achieve gender equity in the workforce regardless of, or because of, a person’s gender identity. 

Learning outcomes:

  • How do you shift a deeply embedded consciousness surrounding gender, value, and work? 
  • How do you promote womxn’s access to and control over resources? 
  • What formal institutions, laws, policies, and structures require shifting so that workplaces are better designed to meet the needs of womxn? 

What are the informal cultural norms and exclusionary practices that exist as barriers to gender justice in the workplace?

“Engendering Transformations'' Gender Justice Series is the inaugural workshop series that provides a space for critical conversations on gender justice offered by Steinhardt’s Office of Equity, Belonging, and Community Action. Gender justice is the systemic redistribution of power, opportunities, and access for people of all genders through the dismantling of harmful structures.

This series of workshops will prioritize the stories of womxn-identified and gender expansive people, recognizing them as central to transforming the political, social, economic, cultural, and environmental landscapes of our lives.  Each workshop will be rooted in intersectionality because we know that there is no gender justice without racial justice, LQBTQ+ justice, immigration justice, and social justice, since people who experience gender oppression are also affected by racism, ableism, poverty, and other forms of oppression. 

At a time of unprecedented global  justice movements, this series of workshops invites a broad conversation about how we can build a society in which every womxn, girl, and gender expansive person can realize their human right to live in dignity and freedom, without fear.
