Invitation to Women in Media Panel - From Mansplaining to Manterruption: How to rise up and be heard

Wednesday 08 November 2017, 12:00pm - 01:30pm

 

You are warmly invited to the School of Media, Film and Journalism & Australian Intercultural Society’s Women in Media panel; From mansplaining to manterruption: How to rise above and be heard.

The panel will feature Laurel Irving and Wendy Tuohy in conversation, and will be moderated by Karen Percy

Whether in workplaces or online spaces, women’s voices often get drowned by a range of male voices from the well intentioned to the unabashedly sexist.  

Hear from the panel of seasoned female journalists as they share their experiences on:

  • how to counter mansplaining
  • how men can avoid and curb manterruptions and mansplaining in personal and professional spaces
  • what women with different communication styles can do to be heard in physical and digital spaces and how to deal with online abuse

Date             Wednesday, 8 November 2017
Time            12:00pm to 1:30pm (Lunch provided at 12:00pm and panel from 12:30pm - 1:30pm)
