Talking Back: Gender, Communication, and Leveraging Your Own Style

Jun. 12, 2017
Toronto Online

OBA Women Lawyers Forum PROGRAM | 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Why is it that men who yell are “passionate” and “powerful”, but women who raise their voices “screech”, “nag”, and “get hysterical”? Why are women criticized for saying “sorry”, but men aren’t criticized for interrupting? In Women Lawyers Forum’s second installment of its Empowering Women series, our expert panel explore the impact of gender on communication. Do men and women really speak a different language, or is it just perception or stereotype? And is any one style of expression the “best” style for advancing your career? Our panel of powerhouse female professionals will share their view of how gender and communication interplay in all areas of law. Gain insight into how to leverage your own style and make yourself heard.
