The 'Imposter' and the 'Boys' Club'

Course description

This workshop will be suitable for academic and professional staff and managers of academic and professional staff who want to understand and overcome some of the psychological barriers to the achievement of equal professional opportunities in a challenging workplace.  The workshop will also look at some of the strategies that organisations can put in place to address the, maybe unintended but unequal impact of the 'Boys' Club' and assist all staff to be equal partners in the workplace.

This workshop will be practically-oriented and give participants the opportunity to self-reflect and then identify strategies to improve their capacity to engage more effectively to achieve personal  and organisational goals.  Participants will also develop a Personal Action Plan and/or an Organisational Action Plan at the conclusion of the workshop.
