Gender Sensitivity in the Workplace

The Wits GEO has collaborated with VOW FM in producing a Podcast series that's looking at Gender Sensitivity in the Workplace. The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, the employment equity act (EEA) and the labour relations act (LRA) all prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, sex and sexual orientation. But how do workplaces facilitate and orchestrate spaces that are free from these types of discriminations? In the podcast we will engage social scientists, legal experts and the LGBQTIA+ community as we unpack how to create workplaces that are safe, and free for all.”

Defining gender in the workplace during the 21st century

In this episode, we are tackling the concept of gender in the workplace in the 21st century.

We further look into the constitutional provisions that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, sex and sexual orientation.

We also talk about how society has evolved from past traditional social constructs of binaries and how historically, one's gender was assigned at birth based on their reproductive organs.
