We are excited to announce that jobs.ac.uk is collaborating with Women-Space to host an exclusive webinar on ‘How to Champion Yourself’.
Many women find it difficult to speak about their strengths and achievements. Research from Indeed demonstrates that whilst women find other women’s accomplishments motivating, they avoid talking about their own successes and even downplay their merits.
Drawing on a wealth of experience, Christina Hughes and a panel of leaders in HE will provide insight into how you can claim your space as an awe-inspiring woman, without sounding boastful.
- Learn why it is insufficient to simply tell women to self-promote
- Have a better understanding of when it’s acceptable to draw attention to your achievements
- Hear about different techniques that can enhance your visibility and support other women
- Understand why it is sometimes good to talk about your failures
- Your questions answered in a live Q & A session
