Today is International Women’s Day 2021. It is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is also a day to remember that much inequity still exists among the genders, and this last year has been quite destructive to efforts to bring such equity to the workplace. Today’s discussion aims to raise awareness of some of the issues that women face in the workplace, including imposter syndrome and microaggressions.
We are very lucky to have not one, but two organizational psychologists with us today from Gallaher Edge, an organization dedicated to helping executives and other professionals grapple with challenges in the workplace.
First, we have Dr. Laura Gallaher, who has worked in the field of professional and personal development since 2005. Laura is an Organizational Psychologist, Speaker, Facilitator, and Executive Coach. She is the founder and CEO of Gallaher Edge, which she started in 2013 and rebranded in 2018. Laura is an expert teacher, trainer, speaker, and consultant, particularly in the concepts of self-awareness, accountability, trust-building, and team cohesion.
We also have with us Dr. Stephanie Lopez, an Organizational Psychologist and Executive Coach who is an expert in the application of the science of psychology to organizations. Her passions lie in leadership development and team cohesion. Stephanie specifically helps leaders become more authentic and self-aware, which enables greater resilience, stamina, and flexibility in the face of demanding and difficult leadership challenges.
