Sociologist Dana Beth Weinberg

Do you feel things are unfair for women in publishing? Maybe you have a boss or co-workers you feel don’t value your opinions (or steal credit for them). Maybe your good work isn’t being recognized or rewarded the way you expected, while your male colleagues seem to be getting ahead. Maybe the guy in the next office gets praised for leaving early to go to his kid’s soccer game, while you get flak for being a mom or are frequently expected to drop everything and stay late because you don’t have kids. Maybe you’re being paid less than a man in the same position as you.

You’re not alone.

In this webinar, sociologist Dana Beth Weinberg maps out the types and complex causes of gender discrimination and micro-aggressions in publishing and offers practical advice for what you can realistically do to make things better for yourself right now and for other women in the future.

A reservation is required for this event, and admission is free.
