This week I chatted with Helen Foster about toxic masculinity in the workplace.  Our conversation was recorded back in September in the midst of the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, so toxic masculinity was thick in the air around us and fueled this conversation on a very important topic. 

 

In this conversation we talk about:

 

  • What toxic male behavior in the workplace can look like
  • How it can make us feel
  • What to do if you are dealing with a toxic male coworker or work culture
  • Why disrespectful coworkers make us feel bad even when we know we shouldn’t let it get to us
  • The social pressures & timelines that women often face
  • And so much more
