Power and gender dynamics are defined as “the friction between people with different gender and sexual identities in corporate organizations.” While organizations may genuinely want to promote an inclusive and equitable workplace for everyone, factors such as biases, microaggressions, double-bind, and intersectionality may contribute to a workplace climate where there are both undisclosed (implicit) and obvious (explicit) differences in how genders are treated and respected in the workplace. This impacts all team members' decision-making ability and productivity and interferes with creating a diverse and positive workplace. In this course, learners will be guided through a conversation about how power and gender dynamics influence behavior in the workplace and will learn the four factors that can contribute to power and gender dynamics.

Learners will also be introduced to how men and women experience these issues differently and tips for mitigating the effects of power and gender dynamics. This will lead to the development of an individualized action plan to aid in establishing a workplace where all employees feel empowered to speak up and become vital and contributing members.
