EXTRAORDINARY ME

This empowerment workshop is designed to support women’s career development.

It is suitable for organisations that seek to act upon or pursue values of inclusion and gender equality.

BENEFITS

The workshop invites women participants to reflect upon and acknowledge their unique contribution to the workplace and beyond. It boosts their confidence and ignites them to make fuller contributions to their organisation and teams.

 

The workshop also inspires considerations on the nature of success: the importance of how an individual shows up in the context of company values, culture and methods of measuring and appraising success.

  • APPLICATION

    • staff training, team away day

    Useful for:

    • ›   supporting the personal and professional development of women
    • ›   empowering and increasing their sense of worth and self-appraisal
    • ›   assisting organisational efforts in achieving gender balance and equality
    • ›   reflecting on structural obstacles to women’s success

BACKGROUND

Professionally, women continue being underrepresented at every organisational level and especially in management. Studies point out that although there is no gap between performance or ability between sexes, women are significantly less likely to self-advocate, which in turn leads to less recognition for their contributions within organisations and fewer promotions.

 

Encouraging women to recognise and speak confidently about their achievements can constitute an important part of what organisations can do to support the professional development of their female employees and associates.

 

At the same time, a growing number of studies point out that boosting confidence alone is unlikely to achieve gender balance in organisations. Shifts in internal culture, addressing gender bias and structural changes are paramount.

 

This workshop provides an opportunity to reflect on both sides of the coin.
