Discussion Consider Your Gender In The Workplace

I’m working on a social science question and need a sample draft to help me learn.

For this Discussion Board post, we are going to consider gender in the workplace. The following questions pertain to your experience at work (if you have never had a job, reflect on your experience as a student).

Try to recall the first time you became aware of your gender in the context of work. Describe your experience of becoming consciously aware that you “had” a gender and how that may have impacted the application/interview process or sort of job you have (or had if you’re thinking about something in the past). How did this awareness influence your overall growth as a person? Did you have particular experiences, or did people treat you in certain ways to confirm your status as a gendered person?

In the second part of your discussion post, consider the experiences of LBGT people (and if you are someone who identifies as LGBT, you can write about your experience with straight or cis-gendered people), particularly focusing on the rights LGBT people have had to fight for in the workplace.

Your initial posting should be 250-500 words and must be submitted by Thursday, midnight (MT), of this week. By Sunday at midnight (MT), respond to two or more of your classmates’ initial posts in one of the following ways:
