Event Details & Registration: (What We’re Up Against)
Chicago IEEE Women in Engineering is excited to invite you to see What We’re UP Against at Raven Theatre with a $15 discount on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
What We’re UP Against is written by award winning playwright Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius, Seminar, NBC’s Smash) and focuses on the timely and relevant issue of gender politics in the workplace, particularly a workplace that is typically male dominated. Set in a highly competitive architecture firm, What We’re Up Against takes an explosive look at the complicated battle of the sexes raging through the workplace hallways. A funny yet insightful view of what it means to be female in a male dominated career and one woman’s response when she tires of slamming into the glass ceiling.
