About this event

Imposter syndrome. Stereotypes. Culture. For many reasons, lots of us feel uncomfortable sharing our achievements. During this free 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.

------

"...According to so many studies, when women self-promote in the workplace, the response is typically negative, because they aren't showing stereotypical “feminine traits” (such as being humble, nurturing, and collaborative). But if they do take on self-promotion and demonstrate pride in their achievements, they tend to be viewed as unlikeable.... The truth is that women and those from other marginalized communities face a double bind: if you don't self-promote, your competence or intelligence is questioned. But if you do self-promote, you're viewed as unlikeable.

This is one of the reasons I'm so proud to be a facilitator with Google's #IAmRemarkable initiative, to help break through the social norms around self-promotion and humility, to provide accessible tools for people to use to practice these skills, and to be part of a community that celebrates and lifts others up.

But don't take it from me - 100% of those who have taken my workshop in the past have reported they felt more confident to self-promote, AND that they were inspired to help others do so. 🎉

 I hope you'll join my next session on September 12, or share with someone who would benefit from some inspiration!"
