#SayftyChat is our weekly Twitter chat that explores topics related to women’s safety and preventing violence against women (#VAW).

This week (May 24, 2019) on our Twitter chat, #SayftyChat, we discussed “Workplace Anxiety” with Girls Globe. This week’s chat was focused on what causes anxiety, how it manifests in the workplace, and the different ways men and women experience job stress.

We had participants join the chat from Nairobi, India, US, Canada, UK, Columbia, and South Africa.

Questions discussed

  1. What causes anxiety in the workplace? How does it manifest?
  2. How does workplace stress and anxiety affect life at work – and at home?
  3. Do women and men manage job stress differently? Share some examples!
  4. How does gender pay gap contribute to workplace anxiety?
  5. May is Mental Health Awareness Month. What are you doing to take care of your mental health?
