About this event

This workshop is not intended to undo centuries of bias and

discrimination but rather focuses on one small, but important,

action that each of us can take (and model for others). Change

is rarely accomplished in one sweep but rather in small, consistent

choices we make daily.


• Empower women and underrepresented

groups to overcome cultural, social

and gender related issues by giving

them the tools to sharpen their selfpromotion skills

• Change social norms amongst women

and men by promoting and running

workshops in your organization for

colleagues, peers, clients and others


• Address our own biases against

underrepresented groups and women

who vocally express their achievements

• Identify the challenges around “bragging”

• Increase levels of confidence and selfworth for everyone attending

• Identify and utilize power sources for

effective self-promotion

• Uncover and utilize the potential of

group sharing

• Practice vocally expressing achievements

• Create a safe space where everyone feels

comfortable sharing
