WICS, Math HeForShe, and Engineering HeForShe are running a Sexism Response Workshop

The workshop focuses on strategies for responding constructively to micro aggressions and biases. If you’ve ever been told that you only got into your program "because you're a girl”, or you’re sick of being called the "diversity hire" without a witty retort in mind, this workshop is for you! We’ll be covering response strategies that you can use every day -- whether you are the target of a sexist comment or a bystander. This will be an interactive workshop, with lots of group discussion of different scenarios in different contexts.
