Let’s talk about sexism again but in my job-training

At my full-time job( I will not disclose the name for privacy purposes), I must take online training courses. As I was working on the courses today I noticed how all the customer scenarios were dealing with Mr. Smith and Mr. Anderson. All of the customers were “businessmen” and the only scenario with a female was one dealing with a cookbook! Now what does that conclude? That men must wear ties and work for businesses while women work in the the kitchen, where they “belong”.

I have to sit there all day tomorrow noticing all that bullshit as I try to finish the damn training.

  1. So this reminds me: how do you feel about “businessman” (or “congressman” or whatever) as a title for both chicks and dudes? I wouldn’t mind being called a chairman of a board, even though I’m a girl, but you seem to be more tuned in to this kind of stuff, so I thought I’d ask.

  2. Ugh.

    Perhaps an anonymous letter or twelve to the company telling them You Spy Sexism and giving suggestions on how to make their training more representative of reality.

    Anonymous because you’re still working for them, and I’m assuming you’d like to keep it that way for a bit.

    If it’s an open company, then you can probably be direct with it. I don’t know. You should have a feeling for how they’d respond to you. I’m sure they have some division at corporate HQ that deals with creating their training sessions. Maybe you could find their address and send them some letters.
