Natalia Nicholson presents I AM Remarkable the launch of our women’s networking group in partnership with The BEC.
Celebrating all the qualities of women.
#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond.
Many organisations are investing in programs to advance diversity. However, women and other social, racial and ethnic minorities in executive roles are still significantly underrepresented.
One of the big hurdles women face when tackling this gap is practising self-promotion - or vocally expressing their achievements in a working environment. We believe this issue is also true for underrepresented groups. And it needs addressing. Because the benefits of self-promotion — including taking control of how you’re perceived by others and making them understand the unique contribution you can make — are vast.
This workshop is not intended to undo centuries of bias and discrimination but rather we want to focus 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.
The goal of this workshop is not only to teach the skills of self-promotion but also to create a safe space for women in underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond.
