Join Women of the Vine & Spirits with Special Guest, Susan Freeman, for a Live Webinar:
Talking While Female: Understanding Gender-based Communication Style Differences
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
1:00pm PST / 4:00pm EST
From the classroom to the boardroom we engage in the same cultural norms throughout our lives:
- Boys -- and later men -- learn to compete for status while creating social connections; girls -- and later women -- learn to compete for social connections while achieving status.
- Boys -- and later men -- grow up in hierarchies; girls -- and later women -- avoid claims of leadership and express ideas as suggestions to benefit the group.
- Boys -- and later men -- use bluster to downplay their doubts about their competence; girls -- and later women -- downplay their knowledge and ability to gain acceptance.
Tune into our Live Webinar with Susan Freeman, Senior VP, Marketing & Business Development at Freeman Means Business who will be discussing the differences of gender-based communication styles.
