Carol Leahy will be presenting on “Does your gender really make you a better communicator?”
Historically, women are seen as better communicators compared to men yet the field of technical communication is pre-dominantly male. Why is this? Are males really better at communicating technical information?
This presentation will discuss gender within the technical communications field and if it really plays a role in making you a good or bad communicator. It will delve into the wider question of the need for more women in science and technology and how technical communicators, regardless of gender, can address this question and potentially build awareness of technical communications to the next generation.
