(For more info on Google’s initiative, take a look here)

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.

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.

The final sessions on June the 9th are #IamRemarkable sessions, part of the Google initiative to empower women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond.

To register for one or more of these sessions, individuals should go to: https://digitalskillspartnerships.eventbrite.co.uk.  Please feel free to share with your networks and contacts and encourage individuals to come along.
