When your male colleague is 'mansplaining,' here's what to do

Article here. Excerpt:

'Meanwhile, according to the study, women are actively avoiding certain male co-workers in order to avoid mansplaining, which in itself may “impact productively, limit professional networks and inhibit career progression.”

According to a recent article in The HR Digest, a trade publication for human resource professionals, the best way to deal with a mansplainer in the office is to speak up. Most of the time, the article states, these male co-workers have no idea what they’re doing wrong.

“You can start by telling them what they are doing,” the article suggests. “You can say, ‘Mr. A., you are mansplaining to me.’ Then, from this point, we are pretty sure he might not have an idea of the meaning of what you just said. Go ahead and educate him.”'
