Addressing Microaggressions and Sexism in the Workplace

Women and gender minorities often encounter challenges in male-dominated environments. From interruptions during meetings to inappropriate jokes, navigating workplace dynamics can be tough. Identifying and addressing sexism and microaggressions is key to fostering a better work environment. By becoming a strong ally, you can make a difference. Join us to discuss workplace sexism and microaggressions, learn practical coping strategies as a victim or ally, get valuable resources to expand your knowledge and explore the role of woman and gender minority networks in combating sexism. Remember, your feelings are valid, and you’re not alone: together, let’s create an inclusive work environment!

Vita: Cécile Deprez studied Geomatics at the University of Liège, in Belgium. After four years of research in the field of satellite positioning, she joined the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in 2020. There, her research focuses on the integration of new technologies (such as laser links) in the future constellations of satellites used for positioning.

At DLR, she co-founded and coordinates two women and gender minorities networks (in total > 460 women), in which are regularly organized invited speaker talks, discussion rounds, technical seminars and networking activities across the 30 locations and 55 Institutes of DLR.

On the side, Cécile is active as a public speaker on the topics of sexism and microaggressions in STEMM fields as well as on allyship, LGBTQIA+ inclusion and visibility of women experts.

As a volunteer, she co-founded and currently manages the Belgian branch of the French association Pépite Sexiste, called Sexisme Flop, which calls out brands making use of sexist advertising on social media.

For 1.5 years, she has also been acting as coordinator of the Women in Aerospace Europe (WIA-E) working group on the topic of Visibility of Women in STEM.
