Event description

We invite you to celebrate International Women’s Day with us! This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias, a commitment that is central to the #IamRemarkable movement. #IamRemarkable is a global Google initiative that strives to empower everyone, particularly women and underrepresented groups, to express their achievements in the workplace and beyond.

We know that gender, race, age, ability, and other identity-based stereotypes can impact perception about a person’s competence and ability. This leads to implicit biases we may not even be aware - let’s take action.

We are inviting all NCWQ members to an exclusive #IamRemarkable workshop, held by Saalihah Seedat (Consultant Clinical Pharmacist and Personal Development Coach) in celebration of International Women’s Day on March 9 from 12-1:30pm.

#IamRemarkable workshops have had measurable impact, where after participating:

  • 82% feel more confident
  • 89% are more active in self-promotion
  • 49% achieve job or career growth

Don’t miss this opportunity to foster the skills in self-promotion you need to cultivate your networks and chase that next opportunity.

This event is FREE, but registrations are essential, so book your place.
