Dr Jemma Green has had enough. As has AgriDigital co-founder Emma Weston and Elevacao co-founder Marisa Warren. The trio has detected a silent epidemic in the Australian workforce – gaslighting. And, they’re calling it out.
Gaslighting is a manipulation technique that is being deployed to prevent some women from advancing in their careers.
It plays into the age-old perceptions of women being emotional, irrational and unable to think critically.
It can be so subtle, women don’t even know it’s happening.
Dr Green says gaslighting is unacceptable, and as a female business leader, she’s personally making it her mission to call it out and put an end to it in the workplace.
