Hands up if you’re ever suffered from impostor syndrome, or undersold your skills and abilities in a job interview or situation.
The #iamremarkable campaign by Google aims to empower women and underrepresented groups to celebrate their success. It’s about reframing the way we think about championing ourselves and supporting our colleagues, and not seeing them as the competition or critics.
Founders of #IamRemarkable
In 2016, workmates Anna Vainer and Anna Zapesochini wanted to create a movement that would raise awareness about why people struggle with self-promotion and how they can feel comfortable talking about themselves and their achievements.
The campaign includes a 90-minute workshop where you will learn about the importance of self-promotion in your personal and professional life. You’ll be equipped with tools to develop this skill. The workshop includes self-reflection exercises designed to challenge the social perceptions we might have about self-promotion.
In addition, you can learn to build your confidence and self-promotion with the free online Google Digital Garage course called Build confidence with self-promotion.
What’s your answer to “I am remarkable because…”
#IamRemarkable is a Google initiative empowering women and other underrepresented groups to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond.
Join over 1000 global and local companies that have implemented #IamRemarkable in their organisations to drive diversity benefits and allyship.
Diversity matters: companies in the top quartile for gender or racial and ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians. #iamremarkable website
