Due to various reasons, a lot of women hold themselves back from leadership positions. This can be at a conscious or subconscious level.

How do I know this? Well through my own personal journey and the stories of many women, whether in STEM or not. In fact, one of the first hurdles for most women is the emphasis on the word “leadership”. Am I a leader or not? Do I need some form of “authority” or “permission” to lead and inspire others? Once you go beyond that, there are the various challenges of leading in STEM (a male dominated industry).

This Workshop will cover:
  1. What we do as women unconsciously that stop us from owning our leadership space?
  2. Your strengths and how to use them.
  3. Challenges faced by women leaders and how to overcome them.
At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:
  1. Call out limiting self-belief and self-sabotaging actions you might not be aware of.
  2. Increase your Emotional Intelligence to lead without authority.
  3. Have a plan to go for the leadership roles you are interested in.

ALL WELCOME (all genders and non-STEMM).
