About this event

Join Shorook Saleh for an IWD 2020 inspired #IamRemarkable session!

This session is supported by our IWD 2020 main partner KFAS and our strategic partners NIU, AUB, Deloitte, Mujniza and Mukkancom.

#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond.

Many of us struggle when it comes to talking about our own accomplishments. Cultural and gender modesty norms as well as impostor syndrome can prevent anyone from acknowledging their remarkable attributes and expressing their achievements.

The goals are to:

1. Improve the self promotion motivation and skills of women and underrepresented groups

2. Challenge the social perception around self promotion

During the 90 minute workshop, you will learn the importance of self-promotion in your personal and professional life and be equipped with tools to develop this skill. Participants will be invited to challenge the social perception around self-promotion.

NOTE: To break the ice, facilitate discussion and ensure that all attendees are women your camera should be ON AT ALL TIMES. If closed, you will be removed from the session.

Only 20 seats will be offered on a first come first serve basis. Then the room will be locked. Hope to see you there.
