Online spaces are being systematically weaponised to exclude women leaders and to undermine the role of women in public life. Attacks on women using hateful language, rumours and gendered stereotypes combine personal attacks with political motivations, making online spaces dangerous places for women to speak out. Left unchecked, this phenomenon of gendered disinformation, spread by state and non-state actors, poses a serious threat to women’s equal participation in the digital age.
During this training session, Nadja El Fertasi provided practical emotional intelligence strategies to build emotional firewalls to help you minimize the pain of unethical online behaviour. Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a set of emotional and social skills that influences how we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information effectively and in a meaningful way. Emotional Intelligence is proven to be a key indicator of human performance and development. People higher in EI communicate effectively, form strong relationships, and create powerful coping strategies.
