A Conversation about Gender Discrimination in the Workplace

  • Greater Victoria Public Library Community Room 735 Broughton Street Victoria Canada (map)

Workplace harassment is an issue that often goes unreported by victims or bystanders. Many studies report that as many as 85% of women have experienced some form of sexual harassment at work.

Join us for a conversation about gender discrimination at work! Our speakers will be discussing the meaning of gender bias and what it looks like, intentional discrimination, implicit bias, and more. We'll also be discussing work-life balance, and how women can empower each other personally and professionally.

What to expect:
- In depth conversation about gender discrimination at work
- Delicious dinner
- Opportunity to connect with other attendees.

This event is part of a monthly dinner series called Food With A Side of Community. Hosted by the Support Network for Indigenous Women & Women of Colour (SNIWWOC), and the University of Victoria Women's Centre. We gather on the first Thursday of every month in the Community Room of the Greater Victoria Public Library. We believe in creating safe spaces for women to heal and connect with each other through food and conversations.
