Gender Sidelining and the Problem of Unactionable Discrimination

Professor Jessica Fink

Gender dynamics suffuse virtually every workplace. While the law has done much to outlaw overt gender bias at work, there remains a subtle but significant undercurrent of less obvious workplace bias. In a variety of settings — from conventional boardrooms to less conventional workplaces like the art studio or the athletic field — women experience a broad range of adverse treatment that the law does not address. Professor Fink will discuss how women in both traditional and nontraditional workplaces have found themselves sidelined, upstaged, or marginalized in ways not reached by traditional antidiscrimination laws. She will focus on the impact of this treatment on both male and female workers and will propose some possible solutions.

Instructor: Jessica Fink is Professor of Law at California Western School of Law, where she teaches employment law, constitutional law, and remedies. She received her JD from Harvard Law School, and, prior to beginning her teaching career, was an employment litigator with a large Chicago law firm.
