I’d avoid making the initial email a “call to action” or complaining in any way about your experience — but rather just putting the feeler out to see if people want to get together.

Most of the men (five out of six) started discussing which women in the sales department they’d like to sleep with, joking about planting webcams in the women’s bathroom, responding to advice I suggested about a software problem with “Oh, but you’re a woman, so you don’t know anything about computers, am I right?

This has a few advantages: – You actually get encouragement and support from your female peers, and perhaps your group can even brainstorm for how to actually change things in the industry (or at least in your area).First, let me just say that this doesn’t sound so “casual” to me — the fact that these men were making these comments knowingly in your presence is shocking, and says a lot about the power dynamics at that lunch and in your sector.I’m also going to assume that everyone at this lunch was, more or less, on the same “level,” and no supervisor was present.My current workplace is relatively gender-balanced, and after a year of working here I haven’t really encountered any overt sexism.However, at a colleague’s small farewell lunch two weeks ago where I was just one of two women, I was unpleasantly surprised.
