AWLSIG – The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women’s Dead-End Work

The next AWLSIG workshop – The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women’s Dead-End Work – will take place on Friday 9th December, 14.00-15.30

Across jobs and industries, research shows that women bear a disproportionate burden of non-promotable tasks (NPTs)—tasks that are important to the organization but don’t advance careers. Co-author of The No Club: Putting a Stop to Women’s Dead-End Work, Dr. Laurie Weingart will reveal the reasons women end up doing the majority of NPTs and present tried and true strategies that you can use to bring your workload into balance and leaders can use to change the distribution of NPTs in the first place.

We welcome people of all genders and in all roles to join us and to share experiences and ideas.

Key learning and reflection points will be:

  • exploring the issue in the context of Higher Education
  • discuss what women can do to bring their NPT workload into balance
  • present ways leaders and managers can move their organizations towards greater equity in the distribution of NPTs
