Workshop by Women Techmakers and GDG
#IamRemarkable Google based workshop: Do you ever feel that if you share your accomplishments with people, you would be bragging about yourself or that you would come across as arrogant? But at the same time, you don’t hesitate to tell your closest friends and family to share their accomplishments? Ironic. Don’t you think? Women and other under-represented groups often struggle with self-promotion, and are conditioned from a young age not to speak openly about their achievements. We all have a fear of self-promotion. But some of us let that fear stop us from taking action. The “I am remarkable” google based workshop is a transformation of you into a totally different and better you. #IamRemarkable strives to empower women and underrepresented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments in the workplace and beyond. The initiative motivates participants to promote themselves in front of peers and management, thereby breaking gender-related modesty norms and glass ceilings. The main goal is to change social perceptions and refresh the conversation around self-promotion. Writing down your accomplishments on a paper and reading them out loud in front of people seems like a simple task, but it changes you. It makes you accept that you matter. It makes you feel proud of yourself. You won’t know the power it holds until you try it yourself. Your accomplishments can inspire someone. We can do anything we set our minds to, as long as we cultivate the necessary attitude and skill set to achieve our purpose. And you’ll get that attitude and skill set from the “I am remarkable workshop in only 90 minutes.
