Career Development – #IamRemarkable

January 20 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

We are excited to invite you to attend the #IamRemarkable workshop.

#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and underrepresented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments in the workplace and beyond, there by breaking modesty norms and glass ceilings. Learn more at https://iamremarkable.withgoogle.com/

In this interactive session, you will participate in group discussions and  exercises to develop the confidence and skills to promote yourself  effectively. During the 90 min #IamRemarkable workshop we will:

  • Share data and research regarding self promotion and unconscious bias
  • Go through the main exercise to help you articulate your  achievements and practice self promotion
  • Have a discussion and share take home exercises
