A Special SFU City Conversations: Making Visible the Invisible: The Intersectionality of Invisible Labour

February 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Are outdated and stereotypical gender roles continuously enforcing systemic issues such as the invisible workload? What is the invisible workload anyway?

Today, the mental and emotional impact of invisible labour has moved beyond family duties and continues to pervade even the most diverse and progressive ways of living. Through various forms of structural oppression, such as race, class, age, and (dis)ability, as well as factors such as workplace policies, benefits and expectations, the care economy, immigration laws, and the aging population, among many others, the gaps of inequality continue to widen, often to the disadvantage of marginalized groups.

This conversation goes beyond the intersections of gender. Instead, our panelists will delve deep into how the invisible workload and other burdens are systemically and disproportionately impacting some individuals more than others, in their home, their workplace, and their community. Then it’s your turn to pose questions, comments, and observations. Together, we can begin using this as an opportunity to create awareness and go beyond the often outdated notions of gendered work.
