Have you ever wondered why young girls and boys oftentimes display stereotypically gendered qualities? Or how gendered language alters girls' and young women’s career aspirations? Or why we tend to associate leadership with typically male behaviors? What exactly is "Gendered Language?"
This webinar will examine how language shapes perceptions. The word choices we make – how we describe success, the words we use to label failure, the way a promotion is explained – demonstrate what we implicitly value. Sometimes our word choices are deliberate, but oftentimes our word choices are unintentional. In these instances, stereotypes about gender, ethnicity, and other characteristics may inadvertently influence the words we choose in ways that can advantage some or disadvantage others on our team. Join us to learn ways to strategically master the use of language and get answers to questions like the ones above.
