The g word tour was a six month programme disseminating Genders(s) at Work research across25 universities and research centres in the UK and Republic of Ireland (just writing that in COVID times now seems bizarre!). I revisualised (Mannay 2019) Gender(s) at Work data in two Powerpoint presentations (see below); two participative workshops; a visual exhibit (My Brilliant Career? An Investigation) and a poetry performance (Glass). I publicised the programme, presented, exhibited and performed the elements, singly and in combination between November 2018 and July 2019.
1 hour workshop Working in pairs, participants use key research findings to develop visual alternative models of ‘career’ resonant with their own lived experiences. These are then used to reflect on linear and reductive career metaphors of ‘ladder’ and ‘pipeline’.
Gender(s) at Work research questions and key findings are presented as a graphic essay hand-drawn on four A2-sized panels.
