This workshop will be presented virtually, live from jona’s home in New Mexico. This session will encourage women to examine the harmful impact of a lifetime of sexist messages that can cause competent women to doubt their own judgment, competence and leadership capacity as well as that of other women. Self-confidence is a requirement for success in fire/emergency service. Most female responders have overcome many of the sexist comments, behaviours and policies that challenged them reaching their current positions, but their own, internalized sexism may still be holding them back. Participants will confront the internal doubts, the effect on performance and support of other female firefighters and explore ways to overcome those doubts.
NOTE: This session is open to women only.
Facilitated by TJ Robbins
