Gender Blind Spots and Success at Work

The Women@Blakes network invites you to join us for an informative presentation by our returning keynote speaker, Delee Fromm.

Some experts estimate that only one per cent of what we think and do is conscious. Through fast neural processing, our brains create associations early in life, and as adults, these associations become unconscious and automatic. These hidden associations about race, gender and age significantly impact our attitudes and assumptions without our awareness.

In this seminar, Delee will talk about her new book, Understanding Gender at Work: How to Use, Lose and Expose Blind Spots for Career Success. She will discuss how blind spots impact skill development, both positively and negatively in the arenas of negotiation, communication, self-promotion, presence and leadership. You will learn practical tools and techniques for recognizing and reducing blind spots — yours and others. This information will allow you to increase your options for effectively dealing with gender blind spots at work while providing mentors and champions of women with tools for levelling the playing field.

Speaker

Delee Fromm is a lawyer, psychologist and author. She is a recognized leading expert in the arena of negotiation and has designed and facilitated workshops on leadership, gender dynamics, negotiation and conflict resolution.
