Register for “How To Overcome Gender-Related Mixed Messages” Event

REGISTER FOR DE LA FEMME’S NEXT EVENT “HOW TO OVERCOME GENDER-RELATED MIXED MESSAGES”:

Women consistently find themselves recipients of mixed messages in the workplace, particularly when they work in traditionally male domains and in mixed-gender teams. Where do these conflicting messages come from? Join us for a discussion about the underlying processes that trigger the “Proverbial catch 22” with the hope of being better equipped to navigate them. Dr. Michelle Haynes will highlight some strategies to overcome and diffuse these stereotypes. The event will be at 6 pm, Wednesday, March 4 at the Broad Institute in Kendall Square.

Michelle Haynes, Ph.D., is Associate Professor in Psychology at UMass Lowell. She is an organizational psychologist, specializing in the field of workplace diversity. For over a decade, she has investigated the challenges women and persons of color face within organizational contexts. Her approach involves investigating these issues using multiple methods, from experimental work conducted in the lab to community based action research. Theoretically, she draws primarily on how stereotyping processes increase negative performance expectations for women and persons of color which, in turn, fuel a host of adverse consequences in the work domain. Her recent work, on how credit is distributed when men and women work together, has been highlighted in popular press venues from Cosmopolitan Magazine to the Atlantic and NPR. She is the co-founder and coordinator of the graduate certificate in Workplace Diversity.
