Working Men Are from Mars; Working Women Are from Venus:

The influence of Gender in the Workplace

It is not always easy for men and women to understand each other, and this is true not only in relationships but also in the workplace. Why? Is there a brain difference between the sexes, and does it affect function and productivity? How does gender affect the way we respond to stress and our management style? What areas of the brain are involved in emotional decoding and emotional regulation, and how do use them? Prof. Yovell’s lecture offers a comprehensive and fascinating survey of these questions from a contemporary perspective. The lecture combines psychological insights, neurobiological findings, and stories from the treatment room, to increase commonalities, understand differences, and improve gender relations in the workplace.
