You are remarkable!

#IamRemarkable is an initiative from Google, aimed at empowering individuals, particularly people from underrepresented groups, to celebrate their achievements in the workplace and beyond.

Google Digital Garage will be running empowerment workshops as part of #IamRemarkable Week 2021, which runs from Wednesday 8 to Wednesday 15 September and includes a variety of virtual talks, online workshops and personal challenges.

There will be several opportunities to experience the 90 minute session, which will help participants understand the importance of self promotion in both their professional and personal lives. They will be invited to challenge social perceptions of self promotion, and equipped with the tools to develop this skill.

Sessions are free, and you don’t need to have any prior knowledge or experience. However, they are also run using Google Meets, so it would be good to test the app in advance if you’ve not used it before. Places are limited so don’t wait to sign up.
