This topic is sensitive.

You might have a lot of feelings about it.

Feelings of anger, of shame, of “heck yes girl!” or you may disagree with me 100%.

There is inequality between men and women at work for a reason.

I’m going to talk about it and get real here. I’m going to share what it was like for me to report to a man who I believed to be a misogynist and how I handled it.

What you’ll walk away from today isn’t just some action steps if you ever find yourself in this position but if you find yourself here, I want you to know you’re not alone.


working with a misogynist

December 16, 2020

That I totally get that inclusion strategies and HR open door policies don’t always solve the problem.

Before we dig deep into this topic, listen to this. In my home we celebrate Christmas and we have a pretty extensive Christmas village. When my mom learned of this she thoughtfully wanted to send us a piece to add. I loved the symbolism of this gesture, combining our 2 families.

Anyway, she is in another State so she mailed me the little toy village to us. When I opened the box it was surrounded by these 1950s and 60s magazines. 

What you'll learn from this episode:

Why misogyny is still a problem in the workplace

My personal experience and how I handled it at work

Advice for organizations and you on how to address this problem at the root

Why some people, even women, deny it's a problem and typical HR and training programs don't help
