Michelle Cowan and Nicole O’ Keefe: Women Working In Male Dominated Industries (Part 2)
The 2019 Women in the Workplace report states that women who are a numerical minority at work are more likely to experience microaggressions, exclusionary behavior and an increased pressure to perform. They are also twice as likely to have been sexually harassed during the course of their career. In Part 2 of our "Women Working In Male Dominated Industries" series, we have the pleasure of hearing from Nicole O' Keefe, Electrician and Board Chair at TradeUP Australia, and Michelle Cowan, an Australian Football League High Performance Coach.
In the episode, Nicole and Michelle will share how they developed the passion for their careers and the challenges they have faced as women working in male dominated fields.
