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.

A lunch and panel discussion featuring Laurel Irving and Wendy Tuohy in conversation, moderated by Karen Percy.

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
