Presentation Details:

Engineering is about critically observing the work around us and solving the problems we find. Elba Pareja-Gallagher wants to solve a big workplace problem by re-engineering how employees and companies think about gender at work. We hear so much about gender issues but it can be an uncomfortable and tricky subject to talk about at work- as tricky as today’s politics! Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in a candid conversation to understand what the big deal is. Aren’t things already equal? Why should you care? What’s in it for you?

Men and women will find this meeting interesting, entertaining and very useful for work.
