How to Channel your Femininity in the Workplace
Academic and professional situations that confront us with our places in sociopolitical hierarchies are illuminating, but also agitating and confusing. This workshop creates a space to engage in meaningful dialogue and self reflection about our positionality as women from different backgrounds.

About The Event
This event is led by Dr. María Gabriela Palacio Ludeña. She is an Assistant Professor (University Lecturer) in Modern History at the Latin American Studies Programme - Institute for History. Situated within development studies and informed by political economy, anthropology of the state, and sociology of gender and race, her work seeks to understand how social policy shapes social and political identities. To that aim, she has adopted an intersectional approach, attentive to gender, age, class, race, and ethnicity. Most of her empirical research has focused on Ecuador, though she has written more broadly about Latin America.
Dr. María holds a PhD in Development Studies from the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS). She obtained her BSc in Economics from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador in 2008 and an MSc degree in Social Economy and Non-Profit Organisations Management at the Universitat de València in 2009. She also obtained an MA in Development Studies at the ISS in 2011, specialising in Poverty Studies and Policy Analysis.
Before her academic career, she worked in the NGO sector on public health projects, as a consultant on value chains and sustainable development, and in public administration for the Ecuadorian Development Bank on projects related to inequality and poverty, social protection and tax reform.
