Masculinity, Femininity & Others: new meanings in organisational life

Masculinity, Femininity & Others: new meanings in organisational life

Exploration Session: July 12th, 2016, at Institut Innova, Barcelona.

Reflective Session: July 12th, 2016, Innova, Barcelona.

Lately, it seems gender themes are not fashionable in organisations. However most men, as much as women, participate passionately when topics related to gender differences pop up in a conversation with colleagues. Could gender issues influence our daily working relations more than expected? And if so, what are the practical effects of this?

Gender equality is a political goal and a principle that is expected to support the development of our societies and economies, our organisations and families. However, data shows that this does not describe the real situation in most realms. In any case, some people find and feel gender differences as natural and positive, while others express that gender equality is already (almost) achieved.

Are you tired of felling pressured into having to behave accordingly to gender norms? If you enjoy collaborating in difference; if you are trapped in specialised behaviours, puzzled about what it means to change manners, preconceptions, even feelings, values and thoughts… or if you want to explore and understand collectively any experience related to the influence or not of gender relations at work, we invite you to explore it in this joint reflective session on Tuesday 12th July from 6pm to 8:30pm at Innova Institute, Barcelona.

This reflective session is facilitated by:

  • Sandra Carrau Pascual – Consultant of Instituto Innova and Co-creator of the Conference ‘Singularities, Innovation and Entrepreneurship’
  • Cristina Castellanos Serrano – Senior Consultant and Researcher at Tavistock Institute of Human Relations. Lecturer of Professional Skills at ICADE-ICAI
  • Joan Roma i Vergés – President of INNOVA Institute for organizational and social innovation. Co-creator of the Conference ‘Singularities, Innovation and Entrepreneurship’

We invite people from a variety of backgrounds, ages, professional roles (and other categories that impact our identity), to share their work experiences that relate to issues of masculinity, femininity and other gender expressions to try to reflect and make sense of all these together.

The session is co-created by Innova and The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations.
