Description: This 90-minute interactive session is designed to explore women’s experiences managing social relationships in the workplace as embedded in their work roles, and the implications of these relational practices for health and well-being. In the first part of the session, and using research and theory from the occupational health and well-being literature, we will explore the links between gender, emotional labour, imposter syndrome, stress, and burnout.
